Hurricane Ida has hit the US state of Louisiana , causing widespread damage and loss of power.

At this stage more than one million people have lost power in the state with the city of New Orleans being the worst hit. Currently, emergency generators are the only way people have been able to get any kind of electricity in that city.

US President Joe Biden declared a “major disaster” and said it could take weeks to restore supplies. He has released extra funds for rescue and recovery efforts.

Hurricane Ida was originally declared a category four storm which means people should expect it to cause severe damage to buildings, trees and power lines.

However, it has now been downgraded to a category one, with its winds dropping to 170kmph as it moved inland.

So far one person has died.
