The death toll from Hurricane Ida in the Northeastern United States rises to 50.
Hurricane Ida is downgraded to a tropical storm after battering the U.S. state of Louisiana. Governor John Bel Edwards urges citizens "to remain where you are" as the storm left heavy damage in the state. Heavy rains and winds are also expected in the Tennessee and Ohio valleys as the storm moves further north.
Hurricane Ida quickly intensifies overnight into a Category 4 storm and threatens the coasts of Louisiana and Mississippi.

Authorities in Mississippi announce a closure of schools on Monday ahead of the potential impact. Ida later makes landfall in Louisiana on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
Hurricane Ida moves toward the coast of the U.S. state of Louisiana as a potential Category 4, after impacting Cuba yesterday. The storm is strengthening in the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to reach New Orleans on Sunday. Mayor LaToya Cantrell orders centralized evacuations in the city.
