Taylor Swift Donates $1 Million to Louisiana Flood Relief

Taylor Swift has donated $1 million dollars toward Louisiana flood relief efforts after torrential rains have displaced 20,000 residents and left at least 11 people dead, CNN reports.

“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home,” Swift said in a statement to CNN.
“The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.”
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has declared a state of emergency in the wake of the disaster that has damaged at least 40,000 residences.
“We are going to need volunteers to get mud out of homes,” Edwards said Tuesday. “Not everyone can do this on their own.”
