August 29 will forever be a day that Louisiana residents will remember. Three hurricanes have made landfall on this day. Those three storms severely altered Louisiana's geography and lives, Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser said reflecting on the anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina, Isaac, and Ida. Most remember exactly where they were, what they were doing, and how it felt to ride out one or all of these hurricanes. Hurricane Katrina blew through Louisiana 17 years ago today. Then in 2012, on the night of August 28 and early hours of August 29, Hurricane Isaac made landfall. One year ago on this day, Louisiana was in the midst of yet another deadly, dangerous disaster; Hurricane Ida, probably the most vivid memories still in everyone's minds. For many Louisiana residents, Aug. 29 is and will be an emotional day as they mark the anniversary of when several storms hit the area.
