After devastating the Louisiana coast, the remnants of Hurricane Ida flooded the Northeast with torrential rain on Tuesday night.
Both regions have suffered major damage – fast-moving floodwaters and large tornadoes in the Northeast, and powerful winds that ripped apart buildings and knocked out power along the Gulf Coast. In Louisiana, the hurricane killed nine people. In the Northeast, at least 48 people died during the deluge.
Much of the flooding and wind damage is visible from space, and satellites captured it as they passed overhead. From helicopters and drones, meanwhile, reporters have even spotted oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico.
