Neighbors helping neighbors recover, clean up after Laura in Louisiana

Help rebuilding in Lake Charles

LAKE CHARLES – Without power and low accessibility to gas and other essentials, residents in Lake Charles and surrounding communities band together as they begin the long road to recovery.

Nearly every street in Lake Charles shows the devastation of Hurricane Laura, which stormed through Wednesday night.

However, residents and volunteers, coming from as far as Texas, came together to help families clean up their homes and businesses littered with debris. While one local man cooked food for anyone in need.
