NORCO – Four months pregnant, with a toddler son at her side, Amy Lingawi realized her house had flooded during Hurricane Isaac when she saw pictures posted online by her neighborhood association.
Husband Shawn Lingawi stayed behind as part of his company’s emergency response team and couldn’t check on the couple’s home for days. In Houston, Amy Lingawi could only wait.
“It was hard. I worried about our neighbors and our pets,” the young mother said. “I couldn’t even talk to my husband.”
