New Orleans is quiet as it waits for major hurricane Ida to make landfall

NEW ORLEANS LA - AUGUST 29 The downtown skyline along Canal Street is largely shrouded in darkness as the electricity throughout Orleans Parish has failed, damaged by Hurricane Ida on August 29, 2021 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Some lights are on, illuminated by generators. There is a fear that the electrical grid could take weeks to repair. Ida is going to blast New Orleans 16 years to the day after Katrina laid waste to the city. (Photo by Michael Robinson Chavez/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
