Hurricane Ida churned through the gulf Sunday afternoon, bringing heavy rain, winds up to 150mph and storm surges the coast hasn’t seen since Hurricane Katrina. When Monday morning arrived, millions were without power in Lousiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. The Wall Street Journal reported an estimated $15 billion to $20 billion in damages and hundreds of thousands of homes at risk because of floodwater damage.

The storm didn’t stop its destruction after barreling through the gulf. Ida continued its path towards the tri-state and by Wednesday night parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York were underwater and without power. One of the most horrific photos captured from the destruction was a picture of a house in Mullica Hill, New Jersey that was completed torn in half from a tornado that touched down in the small town Wednesday night. Other tornados in the area were also reported as millions lost power in the northeast.

In New York, it was more of the same as floodwaters rushed into basements leaving people trapped in their homes. Highways were also flooded trapping people in their cars with no escape from rising water. A Passiac, NJ man was found dead in his car after it was trapped and submerged under floodwaters.
