Satellite images show extreme flooding in New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida

The epic storm that swept across the eastern United States this week hit New Jersey so hard that satellites saw the damage from space. 

After Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana on Sunday (Aug. 29), it swept up the coast, bringing with it extreme weather, rainfall and destruction. Wednesday night (Sept. 1), the storm hit New Jersey. The historic rainfall has so far killed at least 25 people in the state and at least 61 people across eight states. The storm surge happened quickly, submerging apartments and trapping people in their cars, according to a New York Times report. The storm even stirred up tornadoes in southern New Jersey.
