 The recent tropical storm has now moved to a Category 4 Hurricane. Hurricane Ida has made its mark on history and other states, but Louisiana has gotten the most damage from it right now. More than 1,000,000 people have no electricity, and barges have broken loose from their berths and there are four known deaths because of Ida. Furthermore, the government has issued a boil water advisory because of the loss of pressure in the Jefferson Parish distribution system. Keep Louisiana in your prayers.
