Hurricane Ida made landfall in Southeast Louisiana on August 29th exactly sixteen years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the same area. Ida touched down as a category four storm and has left much of the region without power.
Reports say that it may be up to six weeks before power is returned. The positive news is that the floodwalls and levees seem to have held. First responders are doing their best to go door to door checking on people who weathered the storm. Please join us in prayer for families affected by Hurricane Ida.
Are you interested in updates about Church of the Resurrection’s Disaster Response efforts in Louisiana and possibly volunteering with clean up? Sign-up here.
