The flooding in Louisiana is likely the worst natural disaster in the United States since 2012’s Superstorm Sandy. Relentless flooding has devastated southern Louisiana, now a federal disaster area. Following severe storms, rising waters have killed at least seven, destroyed countless homes and forced tens of thousands to flee for their lives — including Jewish Federation staff and many from the local Jewish community. Help ensure that the thousands of people affected by this flood receive the support they desperately need.
