Ida blew ashore in Louisiana on Sunday tied as the fifth-strongest storm to ever hit the U.S. mainland, then moved north with rain that overwhelmed urban drainage systems.
The storm killed more than two dozen people in New Jersey and at least 11 in New York City — many drowning in their basement apartments or in cars trapped in submerged roadways.
