On Thursday, August 27, 2020, a catastrophic hurricane hit Lake Charles, La. and its surrounding areas. It has affected at least 15 neighboring parishes around Calcasieu. It has displaced thousands and devastated many lives. Immediately following the storm, our team mobilized and headed west to help restore lives and businesses. We continue to work hard every day and will be there for the foreseeable future.
