Ida Strikes

Stay safe, folks.

Around a million people are without power in southern Mississippi and Louisiana as Hurricane Ida tore through  the region on Sunday, knocking out electricity to all of New Orleans while whipping up sustained winds of more than 150mph and tearing the roof off buildings.


Authorities late Sunday announced the first death as a Louisiana resident died from a fallen tree in Ascension Parish – even as the storm was downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane.


‘APSO reports first death related to Hurricane Ida. Shortly after 8:30pm deputies received reports of a citizen possibly injured from a fallen tree at a residence off of Highway 621 in Prairieville,’ according to the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office.

    Bahhh, child’s play.
    I’ve had a tornado go over my head, survived monsoon rains with heavy rain and heavy winds, been in a blizzard when the snow was up to the telephone lines, been in flash floods.
    If you are not stupid or extremely unlucky, you will survive this.

    Truck Driver Joe while visiting the damage in New Jersey: “Looks like a tornado — they don’t call them that anymore — that hit the crops and wetlands in the middle of the country,” ”
    Then said tornadoes struck Nevada.
    Well, Senile Joe, they still call them tornadoes and Nevada is not in the middle country and rarely gets tornadoes and doesn’t have much crop land.
