Hurricane Laura claims a life and devastates Golden Nuggets roof

by Manthra Koliyer Posted on 28 Aug, 2020

The year 2020 cannot get worse than this for global citizens. Beginning with the extensive lockdown due to coronavirus to every other man-made or natural calamity that has taken over. Hurricane Laura, a category 4 storm caused havoc at Lake Charles in Louisiana causing the death of an individual, landfall and destruction to casino Golden Nugget.

At around 2 am, hurricane Laura with 150 mph sustained winds lashed across three Lake Charles casinos causing damage to rooftops, buildings and swimming pools, even sending a riverboat into a bridge. The floating casino, Isle of Capri broke loose and hit the I-10 bridge. The floating casino was put back in place by a tugboat later in the day.

The hurricane ripped through the Golden Nugget casino, destroying pieces of the roof. The Golden Nugget suffered minor damage at the top of the hotel, an outside stage and swimming pool. The hotel provided shelter for refinery workers, first respondents and journalists covering the storm.

The Golden Nugget released the following statement, “Safety is always our top priority. After further assessing the situation, intense recovery efforts and accommodating the needs of first respondents, we are unsure of an exact reopening date. We look forward to serving our patrons when the time is right and deemed safe to do so. Although we were very fortunate that the majority of our hotel and casino was unaffected by Hurricane Laura, many in the surrounding areas were not. Our focus remains on our employees, our community and their recovery efforts. Our prayers go out our nearly 1,700 employees of the Golden Nugget Casino and our area-residents in the greater Lake Charles and Louisiana communities.”

The L’Auberge casino suffered damage to some of the top floors of the building and heavy damage to the pool area. The Category 4 storm makes Laura the strongest to make landfall in Louisiana in at least 60 years, according to the National Weather Service.
