Louisiana resident Ryan Chesson captured video of a home in Lake Charles where the owners had apparently strapped their house to trees and a neighboring home before Hurricane Laura made landfall as a Category 4 storm on August 26.
In the video, the house can be seen tied to two trees and a neighboring home by a yellow ratchet strap. Chesson can be heard saying, “I have seen it all” and “this don’t make no kind of sense.”
Hurricane Laura left a path of destruction along Louisiana’s coast on Thursday. Four deaths were reported, trees were downed, a number of roads were closed, and thousands were without power on Thursday afternoon, according to local media.
Power was also cut to thousands in Texas as the storm passed over the Texas-Louisiana border, reports said. Credit: Ryan Chesson via Storyful
