Rick Scott Offers Help to Louisiana After Massive Flooding
Gov. Rick Scott is lending Florida's helping hand to the state of Louisiana after massive flooding left thousands stranded in part of the state over the last week.
“Ann and I join all Floridians in praying for everyone in Louisiana who has been affected by the recent disastrous flooding," Scott said in a statement. "Our hearts go out to the many families who have lost their homes and we especially pray for those who have tragically lost their loved ones.
Florida also reached out to assist Louisiana by sending truckloads of water to the state over the weekend.
“As response and recovery efforts continue, the State of Florida is fully committed to doing everything we can to help all of the families and communities in need. We have reached out to emergency management officials and elected leaders in Louisiana, including Governor John Bel Edwards, Congressman Garret Graves, Central Mayor Jr. Shelton and Denham Springs Councilwoman Lori Lamm-Williams to offer resources and express our condolences. The Florida Department of Emergency Management has also already assisted by sending 14 truckloads of water to their state over the weekend. Louisiana families remain in our thoughts and we stand ready to continue helping in any way possible.”
