Meet two storm survivors who moved to Chicago after the destructive storm ripped through the New Orleans area.


Last night, the Chicago area was pummeled with torrential rains and strong winds as severe storms swept through the area. The powerful storms brought down trees and power lines in some areas.

“There’s been too much rain,” Jeanne Nolan said. “In gardens without drainage, we see people losing tomatoes and other plants because all of the water is compacting the soil. It’s challenging right now because there is too much rain.”
