(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) -- Hoosiers are on their way to help with the devastation caused by Hurricane Ida.
The Indiana Region of the American Red Cross is deploying volunteers and emergency response vehicles to assist with the impact along the Gulf Coast. Help will be provided in areas like shelter, food, and water, along with emotional support.
Reports indicate the entire city of New Orleans was left without power by the hurricane, which made landfall with sustained winds of 150 miles per hour. In addition, AT&T and other communications companies are saying Hurricane Ida had a significant impact on their wireless networks in Louisiana, with only 60% of it operating normally, making it challenging to organize rescue and restoration projects.
