Biden to visit New Orleans in wake of Hurricane Ida 

President Joe Biden plans to visit Louisiana Friday to survey damage from Hurricane Ida, which lashed the state last weekend as one of the five strongest storms to ever strike the U.S., packing 150 mph winds. He will also be meeting Louisiana’s Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, and other state and local leaders. About 900,000 people in Louisiana, including much of New Orleans, remained without power and tens of thousands had no water in the midst of a sultry stretch of summer Thursday. Efforts continued to drain flooded communities, and lines for gas stretched for blocks in many places from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. But there were also glimmers of hope. Commercial flights resumed in New Orleans and power returned to parts of the business district Thursday. Officials also reported a big drop late Thursday in the number of customers with no running water: 185,000, compared to more than 600,000 the day before.
