Inundações em Nova Iorque e Nova Jersey matam pelo menos 46 pessoas
September 2, 2021 - Três dias depois de o furacão Ida devastar a Louisiana, os seus últimos eflúvios atingiram o nordeste dos EUA, causando pelo menos 46 vítimas no que o Presidente Biden qualificou de destruição climática.
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.
