Officials in Orange, Texas, and Lake Charles, La., discussed their rebuilding plans with President Donald Trump during his visit to the storm-ravaged cities on Saturday. Hurricane Laura hit the communities as a Category 4 storm last week, leaving many residents without power or running water, with restoration potentially weeks away. Sixteen people died as a result of the storm, more than half of those from carbon monoxide poisoning due to the unsafe operation of generators.
