Ascension officials release web app for documenting flooding
GONZALES - Ascension Parish officials announced a dedicated photo sharing web app on Friday aimed at helping residents document damage from recent record flooding.
Ascension Parish President Kenny Matassa announced the site as part of efforts by parish officials to rebuilding the community after the historic flooding event.
Matassa says the web application will provide a simple way for residents to share their photos and data on the highest elevation that the water reached on their property.
By going to www.recoverascension.com on your smartphone, you can quickly upload a photo of the flood from your phone, choose its locations from a map and add additional comments via the web app.
Matassa says this simple step will allow the parish to better document and understand the event by gathering as much data and feedback as possible from Ascension citizens.
