16 years after “Katrina”

Louisiana has many gongs that have been hit by severe storms. New Orleans is currently affected by Hurricane Katrina, which hit the city in 2005.

Although Catarina wasn’t particularly powerful, it brought with it a massive storm surge that smashed some trenches and flooded 80 percent of New Orleans. More than 1,800 people died in the disaster.

Hurricane Katrina swept through large parts of New Orleans in 2005. Hurricane Ida is expected to hit the city almost the next day after 16 years.

We don’t want people to be on the road, and with it in greater danger, she says

It says that public shelters will be established for those who cannot or do not wish to evacuate.
