Inundaciones en Nueva York y Nueva Jersey reclaman al menos 46 vidas
September 2, 2021 -
Tres días después que el huracán Ida tocó tierra en Luisiana, sus
remanentes azotaron el noreste de EUA, cobrando al menos 46 vidas en lo que el presidente Biden llamó destrucción relacionada con el clima.
The governors of New York and New Jersey declared a state of emergency, after the storm barrelled into the north-eastern U.S. with flash flooding and tornadoes. At least nine people have died.
The extreme weather has been caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida, which caused widespread devastation in southern Louisiana earlier this week.
The latest wave of devastation caused by Hurricane Ida comes as the UN warned that weather disasters are striking the world four to five times more often and causing seven times more damage than in the 1970s.
