Hurricane Ida, a Category 4 storm, has caused damage in Louisiana and surrounding states over the last few days. There have been at least two reported deaths related to the storm, lost power, and there is “catastrophic” damage being projected.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our great fans in the state of Louisiana. Our team is safe in Houston preparing to give our fans a great game. We want thank the City of Houston and the Houston Texans for their hospitality. Geaux Tigers pic.twitter.com/yHh0yVXM9f
