Hurricane Ida slammed into New Orleans last week with the sort of firepower that had meteorologists frantically attempting to convey their concerns to the people of the various parishes surrounding The Big Easy.  The damage was severe, and the humanitarian crisis that continues to play out in Louisiana and Mississippi is simply heartbreaking.

But that merciless storm wasn’t done yet, with her remnants providing the northeast with record rainfall and doomsday-esque flooding. 

Ida’s remnants brought six to eight inches (15 to 20 cm) of rain to a swath of the Northeast from Philadelphia to Connecticut and set an hourly record of 3.15 inches for Manhattan, breaking the previous one that was set less than two weeks ago, the National Weather Service said.

The 7.13 inches of rain that fell in New York City on Wednesday was the city’s fifth highest daily amount, it said.

Social media was soon filled with images of the incredible destruction.
