LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

It’s been roughly three months since Tropical Storm Harvey made its way to our shores back in August and made landfall in Cameron Parish.

Although there have been plenty of stories about the recovery efforts done in the aftermath, there are still some Southwest Louisiana residents dealing with the mess left behind.

Residents in the Greinwich Terrace area in Lake Charles have a long road ahead – with cleanup efforts still front and center for many who live in this area.   

The Cajun Navy Relief in conjunction with Church of the King and VOAD have been working in the area for the past few weeks, but with limited hands.

The groups say they have four small fulltime crews and there are at least a hundred homes affected.

An issue as many of these residents did not have flood insurance due to the area not being in a flood zone.

They’re looking for volunteers to donate their manpower and time.

If you can help or know anyone that can contact Jason at 337-552-5826.

The group says there is also payment available for skilled contractors.
