New Orleans, much of the rest of southeastern Louisiana and southern Mississippi are cleaning up after Hurricane Ida roared ashore on Sunday killing at least four people and knocking out power to the area.
Two of the deaths occurred in Mississippi Monday night when a highway collapsed in the heavy rains.
Ida, one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the U.S. mainland, brought widespread flooding and sent such a strong surge of water up the Mississippi river that it reversed its flow briefly. It caused structural damage to buildings and blew off roofs.
If you want to help the victims of the storm, here are some groups that are assisting.
