Faith Hill and Tim McGraw

As Hurricane Ida begins to fizzle out and Louisiana inhabitants assess the damage left in its wake, celebrities are chiming in with expressions of support and concern. Here are all the big names who have weighed in on this important issue.


Al Roker

NBC weather anchor Al Roker proved that he's still got what it takes to report in the field. Cheered on by MSNBC anchor Jonathan Capehart and reporter Juliana Valencia, Roker grappled zestfully with the wind and rain in order to deliver crucial information about the hurricane to audiences at home. In response to those who said he was too old for this line of work, Roker had only one thing to say: "Screw you!"

Drew Brees

Statuesque footballer Drew Brees, who first made his bones playing quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, posted a picture of the hurricane's trajectory on Instagram with the caption "Praying for Nola and all of Louisiana during this time. May God keep us safe and secure." Brees, whose 16-season-long run with the Saints began not long after Hurricane Katrina struck the region, is painfully familiar with the damage a storm can cause, so Ida's path carries a personal weight for him.

José Andrés

Chef José Andrés tweeted a video of himself in the rain and wind in New Orleans. Andrés, whose organization World Central Kitchen provides philanthropic gastronomic aid around the world, has set up shop in a hotel. He is providing food, water, and electrical repairs for anyone who needs them, and his organization has pledged to provide over 100,000 meals. Katie Phang, a judge on CNBC's new show Money Court, has also chimed in to offer her support to Andrés's cause.

Odell Beckham Jr.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. expressed his concern on Twitter, writing "Prayin for tha City! Spare us this time #Ida". Like Brees, Beckham is all too familiar with hurricane damage—as a Louisiana native, he lived through Katrina before he rose to fame playing college football at Louisiana State University.

Tim McGraw

In a touching gesture, country musician Samuel Timothy McGraw offered his thoughts and prayers on Twitter. Born in Start, Louisiana, McGraw cares deeply about his home state: he and his wife Faith Hill once donated all the profits from a New Orleans performance to Hurricane Katrina relief.
