Residents in states hit by Hurricane Laura continue the long recovery to restoring their homes and businesses destroyed in the Category 4 storm.

The death toll from Hurricane Laura has risen to 19 people across Louisiana and Texas.

Power and water outages were widely reported in the hardest-hit areas, and it is expected to take weeks before the outages are restored.

One of the places hit by the storm was Orange, Texas. Strong winds destroyed buildings, downed power lines and uprooted trees.

Resident Robert Matthews is an employee at Mowers, Tractors Inc. in Orange. While surveying the damage, he found the company’s storage building was completely destroyed in the hurricane.
