Hurricane Ida vs. Hurricane Katrina

Katrina hit Louisiana in 2005 as a Category 3 hurricane. Ida made landfall as a Category 4 storm this week, and was on the verge of becoming a Category 5. With continuous winds of 240 kpm, Ida made land at Port Fourchon, just 80 kilometers (50 miles) west of Katrina’s landing (150 mph). It was the fifth-most powerful hurricane to strike the continental US. Katrina, on the other hand, made ashore with the greatest amount of sustained winds of 200 km/h (125 mph).

Not with standing the way that the breeze was not however solid as it seemed to be during Katrina, the tempest was more bigger than Ida. Katrina delivered risky typhoon twists similar to 370 kilometers (230 miles) from its center, while Ida was relied upon to create perilous hurricane twists similar to 225 kilometers (140 miles). The size of a typhoon can essentially affect its capability to cause storm flood, or an increment in seawater. Katrina’s tempest flood arrived at a stature of about 8.5 meters (28 feet) and was the chief wellspring of death and annihilation. The size of Ida’s tempest flood is obscure, yet it gives off an impression of being far more modest than Katrina’s. A few towns past of New Orleans’ flood security framework were overwhelmed to the place of obliteration.

The absolute harm related with Ida will not be known for quite a while. In the New Orleans region alone, a critical number of removed rooftops and imploded structures have been accounted for. A portion of the evacuees will get back to discover trees and electrical foundation on or close to their homes. All things considered, as per starter appraises, this harm won’t approach the $81 billion in property harm brought about by Katrina.
