Disaster center in Maurepas to stay open longer
MAUREPAS - Livingston Parish leaders said a Disaster Recovery Center in Maurepas which was scheduled to close today will instead stay open through Wednesday.
The center is located at the American Legion Hall on Highway 22, and is open from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. to help people in the parish affected by Hurricane Isaac apply for and receive recovery aid.
Livingston Parish saw significant flood damage after Hurricane Isaac moved through Louisiana last month.
After Wednesday, anyone who still needs assistance can contact FEMA by phone at 1-800-621-3362 or (TTY) 1-800-462-7585, or online at FEMA's disaster recovery website.
