  1. Structures are going to have to be rebuilt like in the Bahamas, who usually is in the way of hurricanes, this obviously is a hurricane entrance for years

  2. Here in the “Baja”, below sea level, they are handing out burlap bags to fill with free sand. Monsoon rains here are crazy and unpredictable.

    1. Don’t worry new Orleans I got power it’s still the same. My big tv is sucking up the power..lol

  3. To all the people of Louisiana; you are strong and resilient and we all know Louisiana will be beautiful again

    1. @GreenKrickett Don’t be so negative. Let’s be positive and optimistic about the people that made it alive from this storm.

    1. @Painkiller Jones lmao I swear there’s so many people like you that base their entire existence on criticizing Biden and literally nothing else.

    2. @Zach McPhearson “Weirdo”? Really? Looking at your picture, I’d have to say I’m not that impressed.

    1. @Jill Sinanan oh Karen, I mean Jill. Relax. Some need to have some laughter to keep spirits up. Just bc your a sour puss doesn’t mean the rest of the world is.

    2. @Jill Sinanan GIVE YOUR BALLS A TUG. THEY HAVE A HURRICANE EVERY YEAR FLORIDA HAD A COUPLE BUT THE LIBERAL MORONS DONT MENTION THAT. WHAT EVER IT TAKES TO HIDE THE FACT THAT BIDEN IS INCOMPITENT AND KILLING OUR PATRIOTIC SERVICE MEN AND PEOPLE.

    3. Guys/gals we truly have a Karen here. I was wondering if I’d ever meet one. I didn’t know they were so common

    1. I’m surprised that Republicans haven’t made Ida Bidens fault…give them a minute though, soon they will.

  4. In Florida we have generator sets galore! After Katrina sounded like a Brigs & Stratton convention for a couple weeks…

  5. It’s going to take 2 weeks minimum to restore power to the region. Even the large utility poles couldn’t withstand the 150mph wind. Hopefully, Louisiana gets help from utility companies from other states!

  6. People say they saw gargamel standing on a mountain saying…Ravage the land like never before total destruction from mountain to shore

  7. Why aren’t more power lines underground? – seems not smart to put them on poles in a hurricane prone area…any reason why?

  8. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

  9. The states that want no obligation to the federal government will beg and receive assistance and get it, as they should. Then they will immediately revert back to tearing down our democracy.

  10. Dear Heavenly Father you’re more powerful than Ida, help these people, provide for them, and protect the Most Vulnerable, may rescue workers reach them in time.
