Over 100,000 Louisiana customers without power as Hurricane Ida makes landfall

Over 100,000 customers in southern Louisiana were without power Sunday as "extremely dangerous" Hurricane Ida made landfall as a high-end Category 4 storm near Port Fourchon, according to power outage monitors.

Why it matters: Ida is bringing "catastrophic effects" to Louisiana with storm surges, extremely high winds and dangerous rainfall flooding.

What they're saying: Entergy Louisiana, one energy provider in the state, said in a statement Sunday that people could be without power weeks after the storm passes.

  • "Every storm is unique. Based on historical restoration times, customers in the direct path of a Category 4 hurricane can experience outages up to three weeks and beyond three weeks for a Category 5 hurricane," the company said.

The big picture: At landfall, the storm's maximum sustained winds were 150 mph, which is close to Category 5 intensity, Axios' Andrew Freedman reports.

  • President Biden on Friday approved Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards' state of emergency declaration, allowing the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate all disaster relief efforts in the state.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
