The sheer level of devastation caused by Hurricane Ida, which occurred in 2021 has now caused the name to be retired by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
This means the name is barred from ever being used again in the list of storm names cycled by WMO forecasters every six years.
Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana as a Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph.
Remnants of Ida also devastated businesses and residents in the northeastern United States with heavy rain and deadly flooding, leaving a trail of devastation.
Hurricane Ida was directly responsible for 55 deaths in the United States.
Ida caused over $75 billion in damage. Estimates are that Hurricane Ida caused approximately $55 billion in damage in Louisiana, and as much as $22.5 billion in inland flooding in other states, including Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
