Omaha, Nebraska 2021-09-01 02:21:51 –
This weekend, a devastating storm, Hurricane Ida, struck the Gulf Coast, causing devastating damage to Louisiana and Mississippi, especially along coastal cities.
Even today, the full extent of the damage and impact on these communities is unknown and may be unknown in the coming days or weeks. But as you learn more about the effects of storms, you have the opportunity to find ways to support each other.
While in Florida, I personally witnessed the impact of such a hurricane. I have also witnessed the power of the human spirit and the importance of having a community of family, friends and neighbors behind you.
We may not be the physical neighbors of these storm-affected states, but many members of the Maverick community are associated with the region. With this in mind, I ask all of us to be kind to each other, support those in need, and continue to take care of ourselves.
