Hurricane Delta: Drone footage shows high water, flooding in Louisiana

Drone footage taken Saturday showed the damage caused by Hurricane Delta before it weakened, as it flooded streets in southwest Louisiana, a section of the state battered weeks ago by Hurricane Laura.

Power lines could be seen toppled from the sky.

The storm brought widespread flooding of streets and riverbanks, mostly in southwestern Louisiana, after closely tracking the path of destruction left by more powerful Hurricane Laura, which came ashore in late August with 150-mph (241-kph) winds.

Delta spared many of the rooftop tarps that were still up, but it flooded some streets and littered others with downed trees and branches street.

Delta was the 10th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season to make a U.S. landfall this year, eclipsing a record dating to 1916.

    It's time for Americans (global warming deniers) to wake up and smell the reality around them. When man screws with mother nature (due to ignorance), she screws with man (due to indifference) and due to the complex global feedback loop system, there is a compounding affect on how rapidly the temperature rises.

    This is a tragedy for which there is no reasonable solution. There is no one to blame, and no one to care or understand, but us. Being Canadian we don't see to many hurricanes. We do however have our share of natural flooding, so I can say I personally understand what they are going through. All the best to their future and may their homes be returned to hem quickly.

    Praying for all who lost family, friends, homes, businesses, animals, etc., during these devastating end times. Praying for God's mercy on all! Revelation 1:7, "Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen.
    Isaiah 29:6, "Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire." Jeremiah 10:12–13, "He hath made the earth by his power, He hath established the world by His wisdom, And hath stretched out the heavens by His discretion. When He uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, And He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings with rain, And bringeth forth the wind out of His treasures."
    Nahum 1:3, "The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, And will not at all acquit the wicked: The LORD hath His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, And the clouds are the dust of His feet."
    Psalms 148:8, "Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling His word:"
    Luke 21:11, "And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven".
    Mark 13:8, "For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these [are] the beginnings of sorrows."
    Revelation 16:18, "And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, [and] so great."
    Isaiah 13:13, "Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger."
    Matthew 24:4-8, "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
    Revelation 14:7, " Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters."
    2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, "And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power;"

    I thought hurricane names are supposed to go alphabetical order…
    Also switch from male to female names also…
    So after Laura it's supposed to be Marco…
    the World Meteorological Organization develops a list of names that are assigned in alphabetical order to tropical storms as they are discovered in each hurricane season. Names can be repeated after an interval of six years, but the names of especially severe storms are permanently retired from use.
