Hurricane Delta leaves streets flooded in Louisiana

Global News published this video item, entitled “Hurricane Delta leaves streets flooded in Louisiana” – below is their description.

Coastal Louisianans on Saturday surveyed the damage left by the wind and water that Hurricane Delta raked across their already storm-battered homes even as it weakened quickly after coming ashore and moved rapidly toward the northeast. Hundreds of thousands of residents were left without power after Delta made landfall as a Category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 100 miles per hour (161 kph) on Friday near the town of Creole. By midday on Saturday, however, Delta had moved on to western Mississippi where it weakened to a tropical depression with winds of less than 39 miles per hour (63 kph), the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. But the storm continued bringing heavy rains to region, it said.
