Things are finally getting back to normal. Unlike Katrina, Central Louisiana didn’t escape Rita without some damage. Fortunately, our house or property didn’t get damaged, just some debris in the yard. However, even now, five days after the storm, there are people in the are without electricity. The neighboring town had a business lock-down for 24 hours Monday afternoon/Tuesday morning due to lack of water, and one of my coworkers got his power back only last night.
A friend of mine in Lake Charles emailed me and told me that his business was destroyed, and found out today that there was significant damage to his home.
I realize that Louisiana is what Florida was last year, but to have it happen in your back yard makes it so much more of an issue! Hopefully there won’t be any more major storms this year.
