Louisiana Weather: Storms
Is Meteorology - Climatology a popular subject of study in Louisiana? Who are some of the most known atmospheric sciences people from Louisiana?
In Louisiana which natural occurrence happens the most often: storms, flooding, earthquake, blizzards, drought, heat or cold wave, and so forth?
The state usually gets storms and tornadoes, and just recently they had the two as well. Because of this, a lot of flooding occurs and all the chaos claimed 2 people's lives last Thursday!

Louisiana, Gulf Coast brace for ‘extremely dangerous’ Hurricane Ida, expected to roar ashore Sunday as a Category 4 storm. Ida hurtled closer to the Gulf Coast on Saturday, a treacherous storm that could lash Louisiana within 24 hours - 16 years to the day that Katrina delivered its devastating blow. The storm was expected to rapidly intensify before making landfall with 140-mph winds. Source 9f.
