Two people of Indian descent killed in Hurricane Ida, report says

At least two people of Indian descent have died in the flash floods triggered by Hurricane Ida in New Jersey, local reports have confirmed.
According to the Press Trust of India, Malathi Kanche, 46, a software designer and Danush Reddy, 31, were swept away by flash floods caused by Hurricane Ida.
Kanche was with her 15-year-old daughter on Wednesday when her vehicle pulled up in waist-deep flood water near Bridgewater in New Jersey. She and her daughter clung to a tree as the floodwaters pulled them down, but the tree fell, “pulling Kanche into the torrent,” a family friend said.
Kanche was previously listed as “missing” and police confirmed her death on Friday.
Reddy got stuck in the flooding in South Plainfield, New Jersey, and fell near a 36-inch-wide sewer pipe after losing his balance.
Reddy’s body was pulled down the drain pipe and was later found miles away, officials said.

New York Gov. Kathy Kochul said Ida’s record 3.1 inches per hour precipitation on Wednesday, recorded in New York’s Central Park, “sent cascading walls of water through businesses, public transportation systems and 1,200 homes, causing more than $ 50 million in damage. “
Meanwhile, Louisiana continues to face a power grid outage, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without power.
