NEW ORLEANS (KMOX) – While the flood waters are slowly dropping in southern Louisiana, residents’ needs are rising.
The devastation in southern Louisiana is not limited to a small area, says Red Cross volunteer Crow Brozovich.
“It was just all the water and everything was so saturated and just new problems happen with these creeks,” Brozovich says. “It was creeks did most of the damage in these neighborhoods. Unless you’ve been there and seen it, it’s hard to explain.”
Brozovich came home early because of an injury, but he says his heart is still in the Big Easy.
Many of the flood victims do not have insurance because they did not live in flood planes.
The Red Cross estimates recovery efforts will cost their agency over $30 million. Volunteers will be answering phones today through Sunday, 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
