Actor Wendell Pierce is going through some tough times as of late due to the massive flooding in his home state of Louisiana. Pierce, along with thousands of others in the state, lost his home in Baton Rouge. Meanwhile the area continues to be engulfed with historic rainfall and flooding.
Unfortunately, Pierce, 52, has been through this situation before. According to MSN’s Wonderwall, his childhood home was also destroyed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
“My neighbors & I have flooded in Baton Rouge. I am reminded of the generosity given to my family during Katrina. Now we will care for you,” he tweeted on Sunday. He added that “faith and family is all we need.”
TMZ caught up with Pierce on Monday at LAX where he quite e motional discussing his loss. While fighting to maintain his composure, he said he had come from Louisiana and was going to head back.
“I don’t know what I’m going to do,” he said. “I lost everything.”
Prayers to Wendell and the entire Baton Rouge community during their time of loss.
