- This week in Louisiana history. September 10, 1935. Gov. Huey P. Long dies after assassination.
- This week in New Orleans history. Hurricane Betsy was the
first tropical cyclone in the Atlantic Basin to cause at least
$1 billion (1965 USD) in damage. It was the third
tropical cyclone, second named storm, and second hurricane of
the 1965 Atlantic hurricane season. Betsy entered into
the Gulf of Mexico and re-strengthened into a Category 4
hurricane on September 9. While approaching the Gulf Coast of
the United States, Betsy peaked slightly below the threshold
for Category 5 hurricane status. However, further
intensification was halted after Betsy made landfall in Grand
Isle, Louisiana later on September 9.
