Hurricane Recovery Update
Since Hurricane Ida made landfall near Port Fourchon on August 29th, LTHP staff has assisted building owners and communities with damage assessments, technical advice and contacts to help with recovery and rebuilding. Damages range from complete loss of historic resources from the storm surge near the coast to structural damage caused by wind and fallen trees. As after every storm, the resilient people of our state will pick up the pieces and restore their way of life.
Site visits by LTHP staff include Laurel Valley Plantation and Thibodaux (Lafourche); Houma and Potts-Sonier House (Terrebonne); and Sorapuru House and Caire Stores (St. John the Baptist). Our friends at Operation Photo Rescue are assisting families to restore damaged photos, which can be important in the psychological healing after loss from a natural disaster.
If you or someone you know has a historic resource impacted by Hurricane Ida, please contact LTHP Executive Director Brian Davis at bdavis@LTHP.org or 318.267.5220.
