LOUISIANA – Hurricane Ida victims have braved the storm. Although the massive system has passed their communities, they now must survive the aftermath as Ida recovery begins.
Millions have lost power. Thousands return to destroyed homes, many devastated by storm surge. And lives have even been lost. Despite the pain, the hard part has just started. Now, residents of Louisiana and Mississippi must deal with their recovery process. Like previous storms, Hurricane Ida recovery will be long and tenuous.
The Hurricane Ida Recovery Process
When the Operation Blessing Disaster Relief teams arrived to the Gulf Coast, they witnessed towns and communities destroyed by the storm. Downed power lines obstructed the streets, roofs had been ripped off, and debris littered yards and roadways. Consequently, thousands of residents could be left without power for the next three weeks.
But thanks to generous friends like you, Operation Blessing has come alongside these hurting people, aiming to meet their most immediate needs with critical hurricane relief. We have begun distributing supplies, clearing homes, and ministering to hurting residents. Their road to recovery will be long but the burden is lighter now because of your love.
Please continue to pray for Ida recovery, Ida victims, and Operation Blessing volunteers as they begin to pick up the pieces after this monstrous storm. To learn how you can get involved visit https://www.ob.org/obdiaster or text “OBDR” to 71777.
