COVINGTON, La. (WGNO) – A horrendous night.
That’s what they’re calling the night Hurricane Ida plowed across St. Tammany Parish.
WGNO’s Bill Wood was there before the sun came up.
From Slidell to Covington to Old Mandeville, they’re cleaning up.
And remembering a night, they’ll never forget.
From the Covington mother who slept in the bathtub with her kids she was so scared to the man who saw Lake Pontchartrain roll from four blocks away up to his house.
Almost all, 98-percent of the residents of St. Tammany Parish are without power.
