Hurricane Ida

08.09.21 | Louisiana

Hurricane Ida

Hurricane Ida was an extremely destructive Category 4 Atlantic hurricane that became the second-most damaging and intense hurricane to make landfall in Louisiana on record, behind Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Widespread electrical power failures occurred due to Ida’s winds in southeastern Louisiana, including the New Orleans metropolitan area. All power was lost in Lafourche and Jefferson Parishes due to the collapse of a large transmission tower just west of New Orleans.

Additional widespread power outages occurred in the River Parishes of Louisiana. And farther inland, Point Coupee Parish (located northwest of Baton Rouge), and Amite County (located west of McComb), both experienced power failures to about 50% of their areas.

To help provide relief and restore power for communities, ARC American Inc. quickly mobilized, deployed storm restoration services immediately, and was a leading distribution and transmission restoration contractor on site.
