Videos show many of the parishes hit hardest by Hurricane Ida's wrath

One of the most powerful hurricanes ever to hit the U.S. mainland has claimed two lives.

NEW ORLEANS — Rescuers in boats, helicopters, and high-water trucks have brought hundreds of people trapped by Hurricane Ida’s floodwaters to safety. 

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said Monday that crews would keep up the rescue effort and eventually go door-to-door in hard-hit areas to make sure everyone was OK. 

Ida left scores of coastal Louisiana residents trapped by floodwaters while wrecking the electrical grid across a wide swath of the state in the sweltering heat.
