Hurricane Laura Aftermath

Danielle Busby Uncategorized Leave a Comment

It’s been a few days since #HurricaneLaura hit our home town of Lake Charles. It is so devastating. All of our friends and every single family member we have in Lake Charles has been impacted in some way by Laura, with many & most loosing everything! Every business and structure in Lake Charles has been damaged. The city is destroyed! AND there is NO POWER! NO WATER! and it is going to take weeks to get it working because the facilities have been completely demolished.
*YALL!!! Lake Charles NEEDS HELP* 

There was a chance Hurricane Laura was going to head to Galveston / League City area, so Adam & I had planned to evacuate west with the girls. But if you know hurricanes, you know their paths change so much as they get more inland. Though the storm spared us and stayed East, it just completely demolished Lake Charles (our home town). Nana, Papa, Grandma and Kayla & girls all evacuated to our house after we saw Laura was going to go straight over them. Thankful everyone is safe, and that is what is most important. Nana & Papa, Grandma, Kayla & David and the girls.. along with all our Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and so many friends have SO MUCH TO REBUILD. The whole entire city needs to be rebuilt.
