The Wire actor Wendell Pierce's home has been destroyed by flooding in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 11 years after his childhood home was ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.
The 52-year-old Louisiana native revealed the sad news on Twitter.
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

The Treme star's parents' home was damaged when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005.
He later tweeted phone numbers for the American Red Cross and Baton Rouge Food Bank.
