The Lake Charles/Jennings area of Louisiana hadn’t even caught its breath from Hurricane Laura when they braced for another storm that would march almost the same path of destruction. On Friday, October 9, this already vulnerable area received the brunt of the Category 2 storm, Hurricane Delta.
The Hope Force Rapid Response Team is already on the ground speaking with area contacts and retracing our steps of assistance from Hurricane Laura. What they have discovered is that ALL of our tarps have stayed intact — even amidst the 100 mph winds -- keeping homes dry. Unfortunately, the number of other tarps that are now in tatters are innumerable. Homeowners, who are already tired and weary, are facing a tremendous setback in their recovery process. They are confronted with the knowledge that their homes are, yet again, compromised and their roofs damaged even more. There is a sense from many, “I just can’t do this again!”
