Hurricane Ida made landfall on August 29 near Port Fourchon, Louisiana, as an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane with winds of 150 mph, the National Hurricane Center says.

Ida's arrival came on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and was described by Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards as "one of the strongest storms to make landfall in Louisiana in modern times." It tied as the state's most powerful storm ever with Hurricane Laura from last year and the Last Island Hurricane of 1856.

Witnesses describe "losing roofs" and more than one million lost power in the state.
