44 killed as hurricane Ida reaped through at least four states of United States

In United States, 44 people were killed as hurricane Ida reaped through at least four states in the northeast part of the country over the past day. The devastating storm triggered torrential rain and flash floods that swept away cars, submerged subway lines, and grounded airline flights from Virginia to New England. Authorities said, it is difficult to zero in on an exact death toll. Large swaths of the affected regions still remain waterlogged as officials struggle to provide an exact rundown of the situation.

US President Joe Biden said, historic investment is needed to deal with the climate crisis. He said, the US is facing climate-related destruction across the country and tackling it is a matter of life and death.

The Governors of New York and New Jersey have declared a state of emergency following the flooding situation. The National Weather Service office in New York also declared a flash flood emergency which is declared when the flooding leads to a severe threat to human life and catastrophic damage. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency due to record-breaking rain and flooding.
