Hurricane Ida caused immense damage when it struck Louisiana on August 21, 2021. The storm traveled through Northeastern and Southern states until September 4, 2021. Ida, classified as a Category 4 storm, the second strongest storm to hit the region since Hurricane Katrina, created dangerous flash floods and tornadoes resulting in more than 50 lives lost, and many more injured. More than one million people struggled without electricity in Mississippi and New Orleans which lasted up to 2 weeks for some. Other areas such as Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and New York endured mass flooding. With cars under water and homes destroyed, many were displaced and lacked essential resources. In their time of crisis, in partnership with the American Red Cross, we raised $390 to help them recover and rebuild their lives from Ida’s devastation.
