Six deaths from Hurricane Laura in Louisiana, damage less than feared

Laura had previously wreaked havoc in the Caribbean and this week headed rapidly towards the American coast. When the hurricane landed on Thursday, he was in the fourth category, making him the toughest ever in Louisiana’s history. As a precaution, the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of inhabitants was ordered.

According to Edwards, a lot of damage was caused by the wind. Many trees and electricity pylons were blown down and buildings in the town of Lake Charles, for example, collapsed partially. More than half a million inhabitants of Louisiana are without electricity. According to the governor, the nuisance caused by the water is not so bad

Girl of 14 killed

The dead, including a girl of 14, fell in different places in the state. Four of them died because a tree fell on their house. Edwards fears that rescue workers will find more victims. “I’m afraid so. But I hope and pray not.”
