Washington, August 30 (TNA) As Hurricane Ida is pummelling southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi, and its dangers of damaging winds, rainfall flooding and tornadoes will only spread inland over the South over the next few days, the US administration has got down to manage the natural calamity.
President Joe Biden held a meeting with FEMA officials and said that thanks to their hard work, "we’ve pre-positioned resources, equipment, and response teams to respond to Hurricane Ida". That includes more than 2,400 FEMA employees, millions of meals and liters of water, generators, search and rescue teams, and over 100 ambulances, he added.
Bands of heavy rain containing strong wind gusts and storm surge flooding along the coast continues as far east as Alabama. However, the worst conditions continue to be in southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi, near and to the east of the center of Ida.
