Footage of Ida-ravaged Louisiana ahead of Biden trip

U.S. President Joe Biden is set to travel to Louisiana on Friday(September 3) to see firsthand the destruction caused by Hurricane Ida, the monster storm that devastated the southern portion of the state and left 1 million people statewide without power.

Biden will also meet Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and local officials about the hurricane.

Hurricane Ida struck the Gulf coast last weekend and carved a northern path through the eastern United States, culminating with torrential rains and widespread flooding in New York, New Jersey and surrounding areas on Wednesday (September 3).
