Hurricane Laura’s Impact on Alexandria and Central Louisiana is Extensive [Photos]
Hurricane Laura's impact on Cameron and Calcasieu Parishes is, in a word, devastating. Clearly, Laura's destruction reaches throughout Acadiana and Louisiana. One area of the State hit harder by the storm than most of us realize is the Alexandria/CENLA area.
Currently, there are over 70,000 homes and businesses in the Alexandria and Central Louisiana still without power.
Widespread boil advisories are in effect for Alexandria, Pineville, Cheneyville, Beauregard Parish and many more areas and communities in Central Louisiana.
Communication issues are fairly extensive as well with Internet and cell service pretty unreliable or nonexistent in most of the area.
