PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Hurricane Laura slammed into the Gulf Coast at the Louisiana/Texas border overnight, leaving a swath of devastation in its wake.

Although Laura has since weakened into a tropical storm, it’s still bringing terrible winds and flooding rain to the Southeast.

Nexstar Media Group, which owns KOIN 6 News, has established an American Red Cross fundraiser for Hurricane Laura survivors. The fundraiser also supports those impacted by the wildfires in California.
