Crews and drones assessing the damage caused by two EF-2 tornadoes in the New Orleans area that claimed one life.

Numerous individuals were hurt, and hundreds of houses—many of which were entirely destroyed—were also damaged.

The tornadoes were a part of a powerful storm system that spread 63 tornado warnings across the state as it moved across the United States.

Officials from the National Weather Service are still trying to figure out how many tornadoes actually made landfall in Louisiana.

Communities in the New Orleans region were still cleaning up the pieces after two tornadoes that each began on the west bank before crossing the Mississippi River.

The tornado was rated as an EF-2 by the National Weather Service, with speeds of up to 120 mph, a maximum width of 75 yards, and a path length of 4 34 miles.

In the Killona neighbourhood on the west bank, some 45 homes were damaged, and nine more were impacted on the opposite bank.

At least 200 buildings in Gretna sustained damage, and 30 of them might need to be urgently demolished.
