The storm made landfall as a 类别 2 飓风 in southeastern 路易斯安那州, packing winds of 110 mph before quickly roaring through the metro 新奥尔良 area. Zeta has since weakened to a 热带风暴, but it’s still blasting the region with 60 每小时风速.

A tropical storm that made landfall yesterday across Louisiana, fifth named storm to make landfall across that state, as almost a Category 3 风暴,” Fox News senior meteorologist 珍妮丝·迪恩 说 “狐狸 & 友人.” “We certainly saw those wind gusts over parts of Louisiana. Very strong winds over Mississippi and even New Orleans.

Zeta left much of New Orleans and the surrounding area without power as 200 falling trees and more limbs pulled down utility lines. Signs outside bars and restaurants swayed back and forth in the wind and palm trees along Canal Street whipped furiously as the storm passed.

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell implored residents to stay home and let city officials assess the damage.

“Although we have made it through, we have been damaged, we have been hit,“ 她说.

“We just cleaned up our yard and decorated for Halloween, so now we have to do it all over again,” Becnel said. “But I think that’s mainly what it’s going to be is just cleaning up debris, tree limbs, trash.”

Videos from across the region show the storm’s wicked winds ripping roofs off homes and tossing debris across roadways.

Zeta’s storm surge also caused a boat to be pushed onto a flooded Louisiana State Highway 1.

As much as 5 feet of Gulf water surrounded a casino in Biloxi, 密西西比州, and deputies in Harrison County, 密西西比州, received multiple calls from people who had remained in mobile homes that were threatened by winds.
