LAKE CHARLES, La. (BRPROUD) – Hurricane Laura left a lot of damage in its wake.

Laura was so powerful it pushed the Isle of Capri’s riverboat casino into the I-10 bridge in Lake Charles.

The riverboat came to rest against the pilling of the bridge and a tugboat towed it out, according to Louisiana DOTD.

The bridge has been inspected and it is considered safe to reopen.
