What Happened:

Hurricane Laura struck Louisiana on August 26, 2020 as a Category 4 hurricane. This hurricane was the tenth-strongest U.S. hurricane landfall by wind speed on record, with peak winds of 150 mph.

On October 9, 2020 Hurricane Delta struck Louisiana in the same areas that were significantly affected by Hurricane Laura. Many homeowners had not returned home yet from evacuating from Hurricane Laura, and many homes still had tarps on their roofs from Laura.

What MDS Is Doing:

MDS volunteers will be staying at Jennings Church of Christ in Jennings, LA.

Volunteers will be primarily focused on cleanup work from Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta.
