There’s still a long road to recovery for people in Lake Charles. It could take up to two months before water and power is restored to the area.
KPRC 2 spoke to one family who didn’t have insurance but plans to rebuild their home.
“It’s just emotional coming down the road just glad to still have a roof,” Jimmy Cormier said.
It’s been a week since Hurricane Laura slammed into Southeast Louisiana.
“Lost, lost I guess that’s just about it,” Heather Mouton said. “We came that next day and come through we were lucky to get through, but we had people who moved all the logs out the roads just praying a lot of praying.”
Hoping for the best, Mouton and her son, Jimmy, stared at their home in the Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
“I was born here, this is all we have,” she said.
There’s damage everywhere in Lake Charles. We spotted a home that was flipped upside down with trees toppled on top of it.
