The floods that hit Louisiana over the past weekend were devastating. Among the victims was actor Wendell Pierce aka “Bunk” from The Wire, who lost his Baton Rouge home.
Reports Page Six:
“The Wire” star, 52, shared the news via Twitter Sunday, writing, “My neighbors and I have flooded in Baton Rouge. I am reminded of the generosity given to my family during Katrina. Now we will care for you.”
According to People, his parents lost their Pontchartrain Park home during Hurricane Katrina back in 2005.
Pierce responded to a follower who questioned what people will find of their family heirlooms after the floodwaters recede. “You will find heirlooms @rodderher that will have been changed in a way that brings new meaning to them. Inanimate objects brought to life,” he shared.
Prayers up to all the victims of this tragedy. Last count, there were seven fatalities.
