Hours after the survivors of Hurricane Ida brought record rainfall across the northeastern United States, killing at least 26 people and causing millions of dollars in damage, president Biden said America was feeling the effects of the “climate crisis.”

The storm that struck shore as a Category 4 hurricane in Louisiana on Sunday killed at least 20 people from Maryland to New York.

‘The past few days of Hurricane Ida and the wildfires in the West and the unprecedented flash floods in New York and New Jersey is yet another reminder that these extreme storms in the climate crisis are here,’ Biden said in a White House statement.
