9 Photos That Show How Incredible Louisianians Are When Disaster Strikes

On August 29, 2021, Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, one of the most destructive hurricanes to date. Louisiana is no stranger to Mother Nature’s forces, and it’s during these times that our true colors shine. Thank you to the countless volunteers that laced up their boots to lend a helping hand to their neighbors. Thank you to the restaurants that fired up their grills and passed out free food to those in need. Louisiana is a special place, and it’s largely in part to the people that live here. We’ve got each other’s backs, and although we have a long road of recovery ahead, it’s the moments of kindness from strangers that remind us of what it means to be a Louisianian.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

If you’d like to donate, the Cajun Navy is a great place to start. If you’ve been affected by the hurricane file a disaster assistance claim now.
