Hurricane Rita Saturday, September 24, 2005
Heavy damage and flooding were reported in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, where the hurricane's eye came ashore with a 15-20 foot storm surge around 2:30 a.m. CDT. Many communities were entirely destroyed, reducing rows of homes along the Cameron Parish shoreline to nothing but splintered remains and empty foundations. Because the hurricane-hit area had been evacuated ahead of the storm, no lives were lost.

During the evacuation, citizens of Cameron Parish took shelter all over the United States. The Cameron Parish Pilot has given them a way to find out where their friends are and also a way for people around the country to find out about Cameron Parish evacuees.
