Hurricane Laura

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

I have lived in Leesville, Louisiana for 1 year and 3 months. This is the first time during hurricane season I have seen so much fear in the eyes of my friends and neighbors. Which in turn is scaring me to death. My grandson who is 29 and ex military as been through hurricanes. His Mom, my daughter, her husband and me live with my grandson. He has us ready. But I am still scared. I am praying and trying to distract myself. I am reading and looming. We will most likely lose power, internet and cell service. One side effect I am having is nervous eating. This is hard to fight. Chocolate is my go to snack. I ask for prayers for all of us here in Louisiana, for my family and myself. Thank you. Marcia

    When I got home earlier and saw the winds at 145mph I just cried. I am from Louisiana and have worked disaster relief for many years. I know what could happen at the coast. Prayers for my family near Baton Rouge and in Monroe. Prayers for you and your family. Be safe. I'll be thinking of you as I watch tonight from near Atlanta. I was born in Baton Rouge and grew up near New Orleans.

    I've lived in Pensacola 40 yrs and love it here, but we dealt with Hurricane Ivan which has the record for causing the most tornadoes = 120 as he went on through America causing flooding. The tornadoes were what caused the horrible destruction in South Florida in Hurricane Andrew. I know that last Hurricane that went up the East Coast had 12 and one woman said "There are no tornadoes in Delaware" and all of her huge trees where down in here yard.

    We have been through Hurricanes before. Planning is the key. We lived in Florida. We have tropical storms and hurricanes. We moved to Texas. Hurricanes and Tropical emoticon Storms. We learned not to live on the coast anymore. Beautiful but got tired of rebuilding. We live inland and highest point so no flooding.
    You are in our prayers. Be safe!.
