One Kentucky native was able to give first-hand experience of the storm on Sunday evening brought in from Hurricane Ida. Larry Small, of Leitchfield, is now a resident in Slidell, Louisiana. Due to illness, Small and his wife stayed in his house, despite high winds and flooding.
“My house is elevated 8 feet because I’m in a flood zone. I believe maybe that we are the only residents who stayed through the night here. Quite frightening. The wind was very, very strong. The house felt like it was rocking. I look around the area, and all I can see is water.”
He is now waiting for the water to recede before cleanup can happen.
