There are a lot of similarities between the two storms. WFAA meteorologist Jessie Hawila compares them.
Many people are drawing comparisons between Ida and Katrina. Eerily enough, they’re expected to share the same date of landfall. Katrina was August 29, 2005 and Ida will make landfall August 29, 2021. While there are tons of similarities to be found, subtle differences between the two could make a big difference in what happens in New Orleans.

The storm surge with Hurricane Ida is expected to be extreme and life-threatening. Some parts of the Louisiana coast could see storms surge of 10-15 feet.

      Don’t forget Mississippi, with Katrina everyone spoke about New Orleans when it actually hit the Mississippi coast. The levees broke the next day.

    I saw this on my schools tv, they were showing the aftermath of Katrina… I swear what he just said doesn’t come true and combine the fact of that levee system to. Please stay safe in New Orleans, the surrounding areas as well! I’m getting so concerned even now!

    Due to today’s serious events, including the Covid-19 pandemic, many companies and employees have gone bankrupt or lost their jobs. So, many people lost their livelihood.
    This previously difficult situation is being exacerbated by disasters in various parts of the world. So man faces many problems that make others lose hope. (from the Philippines)
