Check out our writeup in Big Easy Magazine on our worker’s recovery efforts in Lake Charles after the region was hit by a massive hurricane.
“It’ll be a long road to recovery,” said Matt Brown, President of Enterprise Staffing, a New Orleans staffing agency that often sends recovery workers into disaster zones.
A month after landfall, residents in southwest Louisiana are still picking up the pieces. The storm was the strongest to hit Louisiana since 1856, and damage from the hurricane is estimated to be over $10 billion.
Brown, who started coordinating relief efforts in Lake Charles within 48 hours of the storm’s landfall, said the process has been difficult. Brown scouted areas of need and set up recruiting for workers in nearby Lafayette, with Lake Charles also providing a significant amount of employees.
