Hurricane Laura Leaves Hundreds Of Thousands Without Power Or Water

The storm surge has receded, and the cleanup has begun along the stretch of southwestern Louisiana that was shattered by Hurricane Laura.

However, officials say returning residents will face weeks without power or water amid the hot, stifling days of late summer.

HuffPost reports the death toll from the Category 4 hurricane rose to 16 deaths Saturday.

More than half of those were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning from the unsafe operation of generators.
