The Red Cross is calling the catastrophic flooding in Louisiana the worst disaster to hit the United States since Hurricane Sandy struck the Northeast coast in October 2012. Torrential rains flooded the state last week, with Livingston Parish receiving more than 31 inches of water in less than 15 hours, causing widespread devastation among residents living in the South.
“Thousands of people in Louisiana have lost everything they own and need our help now,” said Brad Kieserman, vice president of disaster services operations and logistics for Red Cross.
“This disaster is the worst to hit the United States since Superstorm Sandy, and we anticipate it will cost at least $30 million — a number which may grow as we learn more about the scope and magnitude of the devastation.”
