Hurricane Ida has moved through the country, leaving downed trees, flooded areas and other debris in its wake. And this is just the beginning of the story. Many have evacuated, and the storm left 1 million residents of Mississippi and Louisiana without power. Areas of New York have been flooded, and there has been flooding throughout the path of the storm. Central Park received 7.1 inches of rain, and Newark, New Jersey, received 8.4 inches.

Average temperatures in Louisiana and Mississippi range in the 80s and 90s, with heat indexes in the high 90s, which has caused the National Weather Service to issue heat advisories.
