Horagan Ida This is a real tragedy for the United States. However, some found a reason to play with it. he is called players Microsoft Flight Simulator I decided to check out how the game would deal with the unusual meteorological phenomenon. At least it looks good.

Hurricane Ida hit the eastern coast of the United States at over 200 kilometers per hour, wreaking havoc. It destroyed homes, disrupted the operation of oil refineries, and caused flooding. Whatever it looked like, it also had a positive effect. Specifically, it has become something of an unplanned event in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

It is difficult to judge how the machine will behave under these extreme conditions. The weather simulation was likely not intended for actual hurricane mapping. However, to my amateur eyes, things look pretty good.
