Zeta, the 11th named storm to hit the record-breaking USA this year, made landfall as a Category 2 hurricane on a 5-scale scale about 100 kilometers south of New -Orléans.

The effects of seven storms or hurricanes were felt, to varying degrees, in Louisiana, which was particularly affected this season.
