Hurricane Ida brought extreme winds and flash flooding to Louisiana buildings and infrastructure on Aug. 29.

Several storm victims used social media to share images of the moment the category four storm made landfall.

One post shows the hurricane totally destroying a building.

“An entire building has just collapsed in New Orleans,” graduate student Laila Vanessa Stuvik said on Twitter.

Independent journalist Joel Franco shared different angles with the caption, “building got wiped out by Ida #NOLA.”

WDSU anchor Christina Watkins filmed Hurricane Ida blowing off a hospital roof in Galliano, 73 miles southwest of downtown New Orleans.

The storm also ripped off a building’s roof and tossed it onto the street, according to NewsNation correspondent Markie Martin.

The National Hurricane Center declared Ida was a category four hurricane when making landfall. An updated advisory from the center shows the storm had maximum sustained winds of 105 mph with higher gusts.

The Weather Channel reported the hurricane inundated Golden Meadow while powerful winds ripped apart multiple buildings.

The broadcaster also shared a video of a trash can blown down the street. Affected residents are advised to “stay safe and listen to the guidance of local officials.”
