“Speechless… don’t know where to start,” business owner Chad Granger said.
Waters are starting to recede in areas hardest hit. But flooding is still widespread in some areas, with some who survived Hurricane Katrina 11 years ago saying this is far worse.
“Everything that I had is gone – everything. Everything,” evacuee Christina Braud tearfully exclaimed.
Another evacuee, Brookes Wilson, was also devastated.
“It’s like the end of your life, the end of your world, having to start over like that. We worked so hard for it,” Wilson said.
At a news conference Tuesday, Gov. John Bel Edwards said some 40,000 properties and counting have been damaged by the historic flooding, and well over 30,000 people have been rescued across the state.
“Nobody is going to be forgotten and we will do everything we can to render aid,” he pledged.
Meanwhile, CBN’s Operation Blessing is on the scene assisting residents affected by the flooding, many whose homes are uninsured.
“It is such a blessing to know that people care,” flood victim Marilyn Pereira said. “We’re’ having to pull out off of the furniture, all the beds… everything is gone.”
