Accuweather reports some of the flood-stricken areas are among those still recovering from several tropical strikes during the record-shattering 2020 Atlantic hurricane season.  And even more, rain could be on the way to the affected areas this weekend.

The nonprofit, humanitarian organization tweeted: “Operation Blessing U.S. Disaster Relief teams are headed to help residents in need after days of heavy rain brought major flooding to parts of #Louisiana and #Texas. Teams are currently being deployed to Lake Charles, La., to begin relief efforts. Please pray for those affected.”

Operation Blessing (OB) will be setting up their base of operations in Lake Charles, Louisiana, partnering with Pastor Jerry Snider of the Christian World Church.
