SEPTEMBER 10, 2020
Hurricane Laura made landfall along the Texas-Louisiana coastline August 27 as a Category 4 hurricane — the region’s strongest storm in more than a century.
Unfortunately, the situation along the coast is still difficult. More than 250,000 people are still without power, and it could be weeks before electricity is restored. In Lake Charles, Louisiana — where we’ve set up our base of operations — the situation is especially dire.
Convoy of Hope’s work in Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura continues.
