What it's like in Louisiana right now
Louisiana is experiencing terrible unexpected flooding. Many of the places that flooded hadn't flood in over a hundred years and were well above sea level, not even in a flood zone.
- •First I'd like to say I'm safe. And the flooding is not a direct threat to me at this time.
- •My sisters town is completely flooded and they are trapped in their house, although the water is not in her house so at least they are dry.This is her post office
- •My entire Facebook is filled with people trying to reach loved ones, or asking for pleas to help them save their loved ones from a home filling with water.
- •7,000 people have been rescued. And the number is rising every moment.
- •Volunteers (basically anyone with a boat) are spending hours upon hours of their time to save strangers.
- •Picture continued
- •Even people who are not flooded are experiencing a food shortage. The Walmart near my house is not able to receive shipments because the distribution center is flooded.
- •This is the rouses supermarketYou can imagine what the houses look like.
- •The flooding isn't over and the St. Amant area is being evacuated right now.
- •A ton of roads are closed. Including the interstate, which is the evacuation path. The interstate between me and my sister is flooded.
- •Thousands of animals have been rescued and the animal shelters need help.
- •The shelters that are housing people need food and water and supplies.
- •Please send all of your love to Louisiana and if there is anything you can donate please do. People evacuated their homes with nothing but the clothes on their back.
- •If you see anyone blaming any person for what has happened to them do not hesitate to defend the people in Louisiana. These people did not live in a flood zone. They had no idea what was capable of happening.
- •Send love and prayers and donations if that's possible for you.
