The National Weather Service described Ida as an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. The hurricane made landfall near Port Fourchon, Louisiana with 150 mph winds, before moving inland over Louisiana toward western Mississippi and then across the Tennessee Valley by mid-week.

The storm has affected hundreds of thousands of people and left countless homeless. It will be months before we know the full scope and scale of damage from Hurricane Ida in communities throughout the southern United States. However, one thing is clear: Recovery from the catastrophic storm will take years.

The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) is hosting a webinar to look at the impact of Hurricane Ida on communities along its path. Speakers will share the latest information, including urgent critical needs and gaps, and provide concrete takeaways for funders to effectively support relief and recovery efforts now underway.

While aimed at funders, this webinar may also be helpful for community organizations, government staff and political and faith leaders exploring similar questions in their work.
