Hurricane Ida hit parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee over the weekend. In the aftermath, more than one million people were left without electricity and at least one person was killed. As the area attempts to rebuild and find a pathway forward, LSU football coach Ed Orgeron has found a glimmer of hope.
On Wednesday, Ed Orgeron reported that many of his player’s homes were damaged during the hurricane and their families were displace. However, he did not that all of his players and coaches were safe and unharmed.
“Our administration has been trying to help with anyone who has needed help,” Oregeron told ESPN.
“Everybody’s OK. Some of their houses are really damaged. Some are displaced in hotels. For the most part, I think everybody’s fine.”
The team has moved to Houston for the week and plans to remain there as they prepare for Saturday’s game. LSU will travel to Los Angeles to play UCLA this weekend.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to our great fans in the state of Louisiana. Our team is safe in Houston preparing to give our fans a great game. We want thank the City of Houston and the Houston Texans for their hospitality. Geaux Tigers pic.twitter.com/yHh0yVXM9f
