This program is hosted by our partner, Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.
Hurricane Ida struck the southern coast of Louisiana on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 29. The National Weather Service described Ida as an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. The hurricane made landfall near Port Fourchon, Louisiana with 150 mph winds, before moving inland over Louisiana toward western Mississippi and then across the Tennessee Valley by mid-week.
The storm has affected hundreds of thousands of people and left countless homeless. It will be months before we know the full scope and scale of damage from Hurricane Ida in communities throughout the southern United States. However, one thing is clear: Recovery from the catastrophic storm will take years.
