Another Tropical Storm in the South East

The Southern United States hardly had the time to recover from that last tropical storm that hit just weeks ago. Following Hurricane Ida, Tropical Storm Nicholas is going to cover a lot of the same ground, bringing more high winds and multiple feet of flooding. Even if this storm isn’t predicted to be as destructive in classification, there is already lingering damage that will increase the devastation. 

Louisiana citizens have hardly had their lights back on a few days when Nicholas touched the coast in Texas. Based on meteorologist predictions, after hitting Texas, it will sweep over Louisiana next, before heading up the East portion of the country. Unfortunately, the storm could potentially pick up left-over debris from Hurricane Ida or make existing roof damage worse. Low lying areas are already saturated from flooding, so the rain will have nowhere to go except up. Preparation time had to be at a minimum because there was too much of an overlap between recovery of the last storm and the arrival of Nicholas. 

Tropical Storms and Hurricanes are expected frequently at this time of the year when the temperatures in the Atlantic are at their highest, but typically they miss land completely or touch different parts of the country. It is just an unwanted coincidence that both of these storms touched land and in the same relative spot, in such a short time in between. The only relief that could come to Louisiana this week would be that the storm mostly dissipates before sweeping the state.
