(BATON ROUGE, LA.) – On August 27, 2020, Hurricane Laura made landfall in Cameron Parish as a deadly and destructive Category 4 storm. One year later, Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB) takes you back to Southwest Louisiana and Lake Charles to see where the recovery stands.
Louisiana Left Behind – Hurricane Laura: One Year Later, a special presentation of LPB’s weekly news program Louisiana: The State We’re In, airs Friday, August 27 at 7:00 PM. LPB’s André Moreau travels throughout Laura’s path and talks to those living with the storm’s catastrophic results. What he finds is a tangle of frustration from officials and residents alike, who worry about bureaucracy impeding recovery and who wonder about Louisiana’s political clout.
