Historic Flooding in Louisiana Forces Thousands From Their Homes
We know that people around Louisiana and the country and looking for ways to help as communities in Southeast Louisiana and Acadiana transition into recovery mode.
If you have been affected by the flood anywhere in the state, there are two things you need to do:
First, register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), even if you have flood insurance. You can do so at DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-3362.
Next, take the Together Baton Rouge Flood Damage Survey at LAfloodsurvey.com. The information collected here is being shared with local, state and federal agencies to inform the response in the coming days, weeks, and months.
If you or someone you know is in need of shelter… there is help for you!
