NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Severe storms have dumped a massive amount of rain in parts of Texas and Louisiana on Monday, with the National Weather Service issuing a flash flood emergency in and around Lake Charles.
Sen. Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) took to Twitter on Monday evening to offer social services and FEMA support to residents of Calcasieu and Jefferson Davis parishes currently affected by flooding.
Cassidy says he picked up a wristband after the storm with the words “Lake Charles Strong” imprinted on it, and the Republican Senator encourages residents to remain so.
Call 211 for social services, 911 for an emergency, or call Sen. Cassidy’s office at (225) 929-7711.
