Tropical Storm Lee has dropped torrential rains on the Gulf Coast states of Louisiana and Mississippi.

The storm made landfall in New Orleans earlier today causing devastating flash flooding. Currently, New Orleans is under flash flood warnings.

The Salvation Army is dedicated to helping those in the states affected by this storm. In Jackson, Mississippi, forty residents have been evacuated by boat to The Salvation Army’s shelter in Pascagoula.

The Salvation Army encourages all residents of areas in the storm’s path to stay informed of all warnings. With significant rainfall still in the forecast residents are reminded to stay away from moving waters.
