Mike Ross has been down this weather road before.

He has lived in the Baton Rouge area for decades and has dealt with a number of difficult weather situations.

Hurricane Ida hit landfall only 35 miles from his home.

The rain was so intense, when he stepped outside for a brief moment, he couldn't see his hand in front of face. 

He quickly lost power on Sunday and has been using a generator ever since.

He expects his Community to be without power for days, if not weeks.
