Our Operations team departed for Louisiana early Monday morning, August 31, to perform assessments of the area and determine how we can best serve those affected by Hurricane Laura.
Hurricane Laura made landfall the early hours of Thursday, August 27, as a Category 4 hurricane with 150 mph winds. The strongest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded for the state of Louisiana was only matched by the 1856 Last Island hurricane. Over 300,000 Louisiana residents are without power, and over 200,000 without water. We have received calls from communities we have assisted in the past, wanting to help and others requesting assistance.
