MAURICE, LA (KADN) Recovering from a disaster like hurricane Ida occurs in phases over days, weeks, and months one nursing home was evacuated from Lockport, Louisiana.

Ramona Gros says "Roof over our head and we thank the good Lord every day that we're alive maybe we wouldn't be if we was still in Lockport you know so we're doing good here".

Thousands of people have evacuated in hopes to escape the impact of hurricane Ida. One nursing home fears when they return home nothing will be as they remember it.

Shaina Bourda says "As you know when you are evacuating and relocating it's a big deal one person can't do it all it takes a team and we made it happen".

Soon after being uprooted by a disaster families will be able to start the recovery process but one person remains hopeful. 

She says "Well they may have a lot of damage that we don't all know since we've gone so hopefully and pray that there all okay because it's like the communication lines on the phones and all this its kind of hard to still get to know whats going on back home but at least here we're all together".

For this nursing home preparation for hurricanes began weeks and even months in advance Jeremy Ryman says you can never be overly prepared.

He says "We prepare all the time for our emergency such as this so are continuously ready for any emergencies that arise and this is something that we just do every day".
