One of the most powerful hurricanes in the nation's history was barrelling into south Louisiana. Fifty miles (80 km) southwest of New Orleans, the staff at Leonard J Chabert Medical Centre in Houma was already weary from a year and a half of caring for patients with COVID-19.
Authorities in Louisiana found people living in buildings without working generators, which left residents trapped in wheelchairs on dark, sweltering upper floors in New Orleans.
The spill, which is ongoing, appears to be coming from a source underwater at an offshore drilling lease about two miles (three kilometers) south of Port Fourchon, Louisiana.
