Monroe, West Monroe & Shreveport, LA (Flooding) / 58,530 Meals Over 9 Days

Mar 12, 2016 | Deployments

From March 8 to 12, 2016, a slow-moving storm dropped over 20 inches of rain across northern Louisiana. This led to one of the most prolific flood disasters that the area had ever seen. Rain pounded the area, triggered extreme flash flooding, and caused thousands of evacuees to flee the area. Operation BBQ Relief set up a centralized base camp at Family Church in West Monroe to provide hot BBQ meals to individuals in Shreveport and Monroe.
