    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Hurricane Ida made landfall exactly 16 years to the day after Hurricane Katrina devasted New Orleans and the Northern Gulf Coast. While every storm or hurricane is different in structure, path, and destruction, it is difficult not to compare Hurricane Ida to Hurricane Katrina.

Katrina then downgraded to a tropical storm but once it emerged into the Gulf of Mexico, it regained hurricane status. Katrina continued to strengthen as it tracked over the very warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and eventually became a category 5 hurricane with winds of at least 160 mph.

    HOUSTON (AP) — Tropical Storm Beta made landfall on the upper Texas coast late Monday night. The storm made landfall about 5 miles (8 kilometers) north of Port O’Connor, Texas, with maximum winds of 45 mph (72 kph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. Its winds weakened as it made its way to shore over several days. Beta was the ninth named storm that made landfall in the continental U.S. this year. That tied a record set in 1916, according to Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach. This was the first time a Greek letter named storm made landfall in the continental U.S. Forecasters ran out of traditional storm names on Friday, forcing the use of the Greek alphabet for only the second time since the 1950s. The biggest unknown from Beta was how much rainfall it could produce in areas that have already seen their share of damaging weather during a busy hurricane season. “This still is probably the most uncertain part of the forecast,” Dan Reilly, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in the Houston-Galveston office,...
