Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief teams on alert following Hurricane Ida

Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief teams are on alert for likely deployment in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, which made landfall Aug. 29 in Louisiana as a Category 4 storm.

Ida made landfall near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, around noon Sunday as a high-end Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph. The strong winds downed trees and power lines, and heavy rains caused localized flooding in New Orleans and other cities in the storm’s path. At least one death has been attributed to Ida in Louisiana.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards in an early Monday morning tweet asked residents to remain in place due to “many hazards across Louisiana including flooded roadways, debris & downed powerlines.”
