Amid all the hard work and sometimes tension amid the recovery from Hurricane Ida, there's a lighthearted moment getting attention on social media.

The Hammond Police Department quizzed two New York Police Department officers, named Juan and David, who are here assisting with Ida recovery efforts.

Their list includes words like Natchitoches, Tchoupitoulas, Ouachita, which are Native American words, and Boudin and Grosse Tete, that are Louisiana French words.

The officers are good sports about it - but they did a pretty good job! The video has been shared almost 4,000 times.
