BATON ROUGE, La. (May 26, 2021) – Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization, launched a flood assistance operation following the recent storms in the Gulf Coast that led to extreme flooding in Baton Rouge on May 25.
Working with local authorities, Team Rubicon volunteers will muck out flooded homes, tarp damaged roofs, and remove debris in neighborhoods across the city. A Crisis Cleanup hotline has been established for those needing assistance in Louisiana at 844-965-1386.
“The recent storms in the Gulf Coast dropped devastating amounts of rain across Louisiana, leaving many communities severely flooded, especially Baton Rouge,” said Adam Garner, Team Rubicon’s Incident Commander for this operation. “Our teams of committed volunteers are ready to put their disaster response skills to work helping Baton Rouge communities to stabilize, recover, and get on their feet.”
During the 2020 hurricane season, no state suffered more than Louisiana. In just five months, the state has survived two tropical storms and three hurricanes on top of the COVID-19 pandemic. Team Rubicon provided a robust response in Lake Charles and is prepared to assist as the 2021 hurricanes season begins.
