BATON ROUGE - Assessment teams from FEMA are in East Baton Rouge and St. Martin parishes today, looking at damage to see if it qualifies the parish for inidividual federal aid.
The teams will survey conditions and damage left behind from Hurricane Isaac, according to FEMA, and present a report on those damages to Washington and Gov. Bobby Jindal. The governor could then officially request individual aid based off their report.
FEMA still has to assess East Feliciana, West Feliciana, Iberville, Pointe Coupee and West Baton Rouge parishes.
Inidividual aid has been approved for 16 other parishes in the state already.
