Hurricane Ida brought death, destruction, power outages and floods to Louisiana | USA TODAY
The death toll from Hurricane Ida rose to at least four after a highway collapsed in Mississippi, millions were still without power, and flooding remained a threat Tuesday as remnants of the monster storm swept across the Southeast.
Ida roared onto the Gulf Coast near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, on Sunday with 150-mph winds before barreling toward Mississippi. Ida had quieted to tropical depression status Tuesday with sustained winds of 30 mph. The National Weather Service warned that the heavy rain and flooding threat would spread from the Tennessee and Ohio valleys up through the Mid-Atlantic states on Wednesday.
