The effects of Delta were felt as far as the Galveston Island in Texas, about 100 miles west of where the hurricane made landfall.
By Sunday, the storm had been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone over the southern Appalachians, but still posed a heavy rainfall threat, the US National Hurricane Centre said.
Lake Charles residents returned home on October 11 to find extensive property damage, after Hurricane Delta battered Louisiana over the weekend. She positioned three trash cans over her bed to catch the water.
"We just got lights back on like two weeks ago and then evacuating again?" "Last night it was terrifying, the whistling and whistling".
At one point, more than 700,000 customers were left without power in the affected states owing to Hurricane Delta.
Governor Edwards also previously warned that although Delta was less strong than Laura, it could sweep up debris from the previous hurricane and hurl it like missiles.
While no deaths have so far been linked to Delta, Edwards said storm-related fatalities often occur in accidents such as falls, during clean-up operations, or from carbon monoxide poisoning from residents using home generators.
Entergy said on its website that it has a team of about 8,500 responding to remaining outages in Louisiana and expects to restore service to most within a couple of days. So restoration appears to be happening more rapidly than was the case after Laura, and that's because the damage to the infrastructure is not as significant.
Laura's winds damaged tens of thousands of homes, leaving roofs across the region dotted with blue tarpaulins.
Delta spared numerous rooftop tarps that were still up, but deluged some streets and littered others with downed trees and branches.
Between two hurricanes and the coronavirus pandemic, Hannie said, "it definitely takes a little financial gymnastics" to run a business this year.
Louisiana officials are also attributing the death of a 70-year-old woman to the hurricane.
U.S. energy workers headed back to offshore oil and gas platforms in the northern Gulf of Mexico to restart production that was largely halted as Hurricane Delta barreled into the region, with 91 per cent of crude oil output remaining off-line on Sunday, according to federal regulators.
"Rapid weakening is expected overnight and Saturday", the NHC said.
