Students from Northwestern State University Elementary Lab School collected relief supplies to be delivered to south Louisiana last week in conjunction with a Natchitoches Parish 4-H initiative.

Items included water, canned food, blankets, sleeping bags, cleaning supplies and toiletries.

The catastrophic flood devastating Louisiana is the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Hurricane Sandy four years ago in 2012.
