“Working your way through an insurance claim can be stressful at any time, but especially in the aftermath of a devastating event like Hurricane Laura,” Mayor Nic Hunter said in a statement. “We are so thankful to Commissioner Donelon and his team for their willingness to come to Lake Charles and help our citizens navigate this process. It is our hope that by connecting residents with these experts, we can make this process just a little less stressful.”
