Flash floods continue to impact Louisiana (includes video story)

Search-and-rescue efforts are underway across the Gulf Coast after Tropical Storm Ida hit Louisiana as a deadly Category 4 hurricane. 

Flash flood watches remain, making rescues very difficult for teams, including Miami Dade’s Florida Task Force One.

As of Tuesday morning, 1.1 million residents are currently without power.

President Joe Biden is also pledging to help Louisiana and other states severely impacted by the hurricane.
