DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – We’ve seen the video and the pictures of the devastation along much of western Louisiana after Hurricane Laura made landfall early Thursday morning as a strong Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of up to 150 mph.
The need for assistance along parts of the Gulf Coast is great.
Cue the crew from God’s Pit Crew, who are set to respond to areas directly affected by the storm’s wrath.
“This is a huge, impactful storm and we are prepared to respond,” said Randy Johnson, founder and president of God’s Pit Crew, whose members are ready to ship Blessing Buckets, bottled water, Gatorade, and life-sustaining products to those regions.
God’s Pit Crew is also making plans to send an Immediate Response Team to Lake Charles, Louisiana, which is one of the areas most heavily impacted by the storm. Volunteers will be headed that way to help in the removal of debris, tarping of roofs, and helping to clean up damage left by Laura.
