What damage did Hurricane Ida cause in New Orleans?

On August 29, 2021, Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana as one of the strongest storms in U.S. history, striking Baton Rouge and New Orleans on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Vicious winds and torrential rains cause major flooding and property damage and stranded as many as 1 million households without power. 

How did CORE help provide relief in New Orleans after Hurricane Ida? 

CORE responded quickly to provide critical support to low-income and high-risk communities in Greater New Orleans. We worked with our local partners and the Louisiana Department of Health to provide emergency shelter solutions, roof repair and tarping, water and other essential resources, and COVID-19 testing for those staying in collective centers. Our emergency relief efforts focused on providing critical support to the hardest hit communities at the individual household level.

How is CORE supporting long-term recovery in New Orleans after Hurricane Ida?

CORE continues to work with homeowners across Greater New Orleans to provide muck and gut services to help them recover from the devastation of Hurricane Ida. We are also working on Green Infrastructure and mitigation efforts to support community resilience and help them avoid future devastation.
