Donaldsonville still recovering one month after tornado
DONALDSONVILLE - One month after devastating tornadoes ripped through South Louisiana, residents of one small town are struggling to get back on their feet.
The city and parish cleaned the streets of debris almost overnight, but it appears most of the rebuilding process stopped there.
Out of around a half dozen homes that received damage on Saint Patrick Street, only one roof has been repaired in the past four weeks.
Some homeowners who rode out the storm, are now living another nightmare. They didn't have insurance, and the Federal Government has denied funding to Ascension Parish. The state does plan to appeal that though.
Until then, residents will be concerned that they won't be able to move back into the neighborhood they called home, some for nearly 70 years.
