Gulf Flood Relief Benefit W Eric Tessmer Band, The Ringers, Jake Hemming And The Bereaved says
Southern Louisiana was hit hard by deadly, historic flooding on top of the record floods the state suffered earlier this year.

Louisiana is entering recovery mode after devastating flooding killed 13 people and damaged at least 60,000 homes across 20 parishes.

But as Louisana Gov. John Bel Edwards told CNN, that process is "going to take many months." He added that even though this flooding was "unprecedented and historic," many are "just now realizing how significant it was."

The Red Cross said the Louisiana flooding "is likely the worst natural disaster in the United States since 2012's Superstorm Sandy," and response efforts are "expected to cost at least $30 million."

Edwards emphasizes that the state "really needs help." Here's more:

"Typically by this point in a storm, I think Red Cross would be receiving a lot more donations, I think there would be more volunteers signing up. Although we have some of that in place now, it would be very helpful if people would donate to the Red Cross, to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, and also to come volunteer to help people get back in their homes as quickly as possible."

The American Red Cross in Louisiana is providing meals and dozens of shelters for residents needing a safe place to sleep. You can also text the word LAFLOODS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
