Bizarre moment cow gets stuck in a TREE during Hurricane Ida as terrifying footage shows huge tornado in New Jersey

HURRICANE IDA’S wrath stranded a cow in a tree and has continued to pelt the Northeast where a massive tornado was captured on video buzz sawing through a New Jersey town. 

Two workers in Louisiana’s St. Bernard Parish were recorded on Tuesday morning hatcheting tree limbs around the massive trapped bovine’s back hooves to free it while wading through waist-deep floodwaters. 

The successful save came as Ida, now classified as a post-tropical cyclone, Post Tropical is “soaking the northern Mid Atlantic and southern New England” regions and delivering “threatening flooding.”

Also, the storm has whipped up tornado threats, including one that reportedly chewed up a swath of land in Burlington, New Jersey.

The 30 seconds of footage shows a monster twister quickly churning through the Burlington Bristol Bridge as cars are actually crossing it. 


The animal was freed after the workers cut down the tree with chainsaws and paddled through the soaked terrain.

The large livestock rescue occurred days after deadly Ida’s Sunday landfall in Louisiana as a Category 4 hurricane that delivered 150mph gusts and soaked parts of the state with heavy downpours.

Workers were captured on video by the St. Bernard Parish government as they cut limbs around the animal to free it. 

They can be seen using chainsaws to help the animal. 


Ida isn’t done wreaking havoc. 

On Wednesday it has since continued to head north and bring the Mid-Atlantic region a deadly combo of wind slapping rain and tornadoes along a path in New Jersey. 

The storm has already prompted tornado warnings in multiple states including Pennsylvania (and specifically Philadelphia) New Jersey and Delaware, including a warning from the National Weather Service (NWS).

“You are in a life-threatening situation,” the service said in a statement, according to the New York Times. “Flying debris may be deadly to those caught without shelter.”

More areas in the tri-state region of New Jersey along with portions of Connecticut and New York, including New York City – remained under a tornado watch until 1 a.m. Thursday as the conditions increasingly worsen.

Meanwhile, the Mid-Atlantic and New England are bracing to get approximately six inches upwards of 10 inches of  “flash flooding and severe weather” into Thursday from Ida, the NWS confirmed. 

The NWS offered some hope that more acrid conditions will put an end to Ida’s path. 

“The good news – high pressure arrives in Ida's wake ushering in drier and seasonally cooler temperatures for the latter half of the work-week,” according to a release.


Since the storm struck the state, it’s left excess water fallen power lines and damaged roads and nearly 1million homes are still powerless, causing residents to be without air conditioning despite the mercury melting conditions. 

Gov. John Bel Edwards secured a Presidential Major Disaster Declaration from the Biden Administration “due to the severe impacts of Hurricane Ida, a category 4 storm that has caused widespread damage across Louisiana.”

Ida claimed at least four casualties in Louisiana and Mississippi, including two people who died on Monday night when seven cars plunged into a 20-foot-deep sinkhole under a collapsed highway near Lucedale, Mississippi. 

The death toll is expected to rise. 

Meanwhile, about 25,000-plus utility workers have been trying to help restore the electric grid, but it is feared it could take weeks.

Clean water is also in short supply. 

Treatment plants that were overcome by floodwaters or affected by power outages – are struggling to provide drinking water. 

There are an estimated 441,000 people in 17 Louisiana parishes without water and an additional 319,000 were under boil-water advisories, federal officials said.
