Rotary clubs of District 6200 (based in Lafayette, La.) are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. If you would like to help, you can contribute online or learn where to send money.
