Yesterday Governor John Bel Edwards did a flyover to access storm damage and he called it substantial, saying it would be a long road to recovery for the people in southwest Louisiana. State officials say first responders, as well as utility and emergency crews are on the ground now to make sure it’s safe before residents head back home. Many officials, like the mayor of Lake Charles, are telling residents not to head back just yet, especially at night. Hurricane Laura made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, leaving a large path of damage and destruction. Some familiar landmarks and places in Lake Charles are almost unrecognizable.
