CONSIDER THIS: South Louisiana Flood Relief

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

It’s been less than a week since the rains began to fall in south Louisiana. Thousands and thousands of people have been rescued from the flood waters.

The images coming from our neighbors to the south are heart-wrenching. Lives of so many families have been severely interrupted. Homes and businesses have incurred heavy damage. And most tragic of all, people have lost their lives.

We are so thankful for the first-responders and private citizens who braved the rising waters to save so many; the firefighters, law enforcement, hospital staffs, the Red Cross, and many others all working together to help.

The devastation is significant and it will take months, possibly years, for those affected to pick up all the pieces.

Consider This:

They need our help. Many of you have stepped up to offer assistance and others have asked what you can do.

WLBT is working with the American Red Cross to assist in the recovery and we have two ways you can donate to the South Louisiana Flood Relief. Text “LAFLOODS” to 90999 or go to msnewsnow.com/floodrelief to donate. Thank you!
