Close to 30 inches of rain fell in Southern Louisiana between August 10th and August 17th. This flood is the worst natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy and is being declared as a state of emergency. The unprecedented flood has left almost 7 trillion gallons of water sitting on top of the Louisiana landscape. At least 30,00 people have been evacuated and some people have even lost their lives. Many people are suffering in Louisiana right now. They have lost their homes and their belongings; recovery will be difficult. Unfortunately, this is not the first natural disaster in Louisiana.
Every few years, a disastrous hurricane will rip through Louisiana and leave destruction in its wake. Hurricane Katrina displaced American Citizens in multiple states and caused more than $100 billion in damage. People lost their homes and livelihood to Katrina and it wasn’t an isolated incident. Floods and Hurricanes are part of life in Louisiana. Many people suffer from floods because they are uninsured when it comes to flood damage.
