About Hurricane Laura

Prior to making landfall in the US, Laura had produced serious damage and took nearly two dozen lives across Hati and the Dominican Republic. As it was moving through the Gulf of Mexico, Laura quickly grew from a Category 1 to a Category 4 within 24 hours. In the early morning of August 27th, Hurricane Laura made landfall to the US Coast as the seventh named storm to do so this hurricane season.

At landfall, Hurricane Laura had wind speeds of up to 150 mph, causing mass construction along the border of Texas and Louisiana.

What’s Next?

A couple of days after the storm had passed, President Trump toured the damage in Orange, Texas and Lake Charles, Louisiana. Mr. Trump vowed assistance for both cities, saying in Texas that “we’ve never seen anything like” the force of the storm. He said that FEMA would deliver 400,000 liters of water and 200,000 meals for those who were affected by Laura.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that he has declared a disaster in 62 counties and their priorities are “power, water, evacuees, assessment.”

Residents and business owners have finally started to return to the area to assess the damages. Power and water outages are still affecting tens of thousands of people across the area, with no Return Date near.Helping Texas in the wake of Hurricane Laura 2020
