BEAUFORT, N.C. (WNCT) The Beaufort Firemen’s Association is coordinating a hurricane relief effort for Louisiana.
“We know all too well what it is like to go through a devastating storm,” said Captain Sean Cowley, Treasurer of the Beaufort Firemen’s Association on Monday as Hurricane Delta approached landfall later in the week. “The Beaufort Firemen’s Association wishes to give back and lend a helping hand to those impacted by Hurricane Delta in the hard-hit areas of Lake Charles, Louisiana.”
The Lake Charles area also received significant damages from Hurricane Laura on August 27, as it made landfall at a record-breaking Category 4 hurricane, the first Category 4 on record in southwestern Louisiana.
The Association is collecting essential items to transport to the Lake Charles area next week and asks that the Carteret County community help with relief efforts.
