Hurricane Ida made landfall in Port Fourchon, Louisiana yesterday afternoon. Just shy of a category five storm, it’s one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the state in recorded history. It also hit on the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina which ravaged the state and the city of New Orleans.

Plus, ambulance wait times are skyrocketing.

And, Silicon Valley’s biggest fraud on trial.
