BATON ROUGE, La. – Musician Taylor Swift has given $1 million to help with the recovery efforts following unprecedented floods that damaged 40,000 homes.
“We began the 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home,” Swift told the Associated Press. “The fact that some many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking.”
Gov. John Bel Edwards asked for volunteers to help in the recovery process.
More than 60,000 people have registered for aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Edwards.
