Not One Storm, But Two

Hurricane Laura hit landfall as a Category 4 hurricane in Cameron, Louisiana on August 27, 2020. The storm caused the deaths of at least 77 people in the U.S. and had caused an estimated $16.1 billion in damages on southwestern Louisiana and southeastern Texas. Laura then turned into a tropical storm later in the day of the 27th and proceeded to travel across Arkansas causing damage to homes amongst the 3 states. SERVPRO was called to help. SERVPRO franchises from across the country gathered to help the people affected by the hurricane.  When we got the call, our team headed to Lake Charles, LA.

If Hurricane Laura wasn’t enough to devastate Louisiana, they then were hit by another hurricane less than 7 weeks later. Hurricane Delta made landfall on October 9, 2020 and brought further damage and flooding to some homes that had been repaired already and some homes that were still in the process. Those with tarped roofs, had tarps ripped off and homes destroyed yet again. These were the most trying times for the people of Lake Charles and the surrounding areas. Our team stayed in Lake Charles for 2 months helping these individuals. Some jobs had to be redone due to the second hurricane that hit, and we stuck with them throughout the entire mitigation and demolition process. We then prepared these homes for reconstruction and headed back to Tennessee. Our team enjoys getting the call to help and serve!
