Help Those Devastated by Hurricane Laura

Help Those Devastated by Hurricane Laura

 

Hurricane Laura was the 5th largest Hurricane to ever hit the United States. It came ashore in Cameron, Louisiana as a Category 4 Hurricane with 150 MPH winds. It has torn a path from there, through Lake Charles and will continue, as it weakens, toward the Bluegrass Area with much less rain and winds.

Some people have lost everything. Damage is horrific.
