Local News

Volunteers with the Cajun Navy Relief has returned back to Louisiana after helping hundreds of people during the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

The Cajun Navy Relief and Rescue is a non-profit group of volunteers from across the country. The group was created after flooding hit southern Louisiana in 2016.

This group that’s all too familiar with devastating flooding also assisted during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Houston. 

For five days, Cajun Navy Relief volunteers partnered with the local government in North Carolina to assist in three cities. 

They rescued roughly 450 people from the impacts of the storm. That number includes about 40 bedridden people inside Highland Acres Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Lumberton.
