September 2, 2021 - A state of emergency has been declared in New York City after it was hit by extreme weather caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ida, which brought widespread devastation to Louisiana earlier this week.

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.
