Hurricane Isaac, a category one hurricane, made landfall in late August 2012. A combination of 75 mile per hour winds and a large storm surge flooded low-lying areas.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) sent in humanitarian aid to Louisiana. Local Church leaders were contacted regarding needs in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac. Following a needs assessment, necessary supplies were mobilized.

Missionaries were evacuated from the immediate area to safer locations.
