Hurricane Ida, a Category 4 hurricane delivered 150 mile per hour winds and set a path of destruction killing 4 and leaving 1,000,000 without power in Louisiana. Hurricane Ida’s winds were 30 MPH stronger than those from Hurricane Katrina.
The REALTORS® of the Northshore Area Board of REALTORS®, New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS®, Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS® and Greater Southern MLS as well as REALTORS® in Mississippi felt the brunt of this natural disaster. The extraordinarily high winds literally made the Mississippi River flow upstream.
REALTORS® are in desperate need of our help to get their families to safety and then to begin the expensive and arduous task of re-building their homes and their businesses.
With the hottest real estate market in history, many REALTORS® and clients have lost thousands of potential transactions and billions of dollars in value.
