Hurricane Laura

Hurricane Laura was a deadly and destructive Category 4 hurricane that is tied with the 1856 Last Island hurricane as the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in Louisiana, as measured by maximum sustained winds. Laura slammed into the Cajun heartland in August 2020. Cajun Navy Founder Rob Gaudet jumped into action days before the storm hit in preparation for the impending destruction that would come to Lake Charles. The Cajun Navy prepared and served meals in the weeks following Laura. They distributed supplies, cleared roads, cut trees off of houses, and tarped homes – continuing to assist the citizens of Lake Charles, Louisiana however they could. Our team has not wavered and is still there, helping with ongoing recovery efforts.
