Saturday, Brianna Hrabina got to Napoleonville where she’s helping set up a shelter in a middle school gymnasium for an estimated 200 people. She says they lost everything when Hurricane Ida hit the area last weekend. “A lot of trees are everywhere, broken. A lot of houses are caved in. The telephone lines are crashed down adn next to this middle school, there’s actually a home with a tree collapsed on it,” said Hrabina.
She says more volunteers are needed. Information can be found on the Red Cross website.
