BATON ROUGE, La. — FEMA Volunteer Agency Liaisons continue to help in Louisiana 2016 flood recovery by connecting survivors with generous nonprofits.
Sherri Gill is a life-long Denham Springs resident and like many Baton Rouge-area residents, her home had never flooded.
Not until August 2016 when rising water forced Gill and her family to evacuate to her brother’s home. For an extended period of time 27 people, 13 dogs and two cats lived in a three bedroom, two bath house.
