A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Louisiana In 1965 And No One Saw It Coming

Louisiana is no stranger to hurricanes—but we haven’t always had as much preparation time for the storms as we do now. Perhaps no other storm taught us this more than Hurricane Betsy which hit in 1965 and changed Louisiana forever.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
