FEMA meets with Livingston Parish leaders
LIVINGSTON - While some flood victims began cleaning up Wednesday, Livingston Parish leaders met with FEMA to create a game plan to provide assistance.
Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks says at least 300 homes have been damaged from flooding that began last week.
Ricks and the Livingston Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (LOHSEP) are requesting that Livingston Parish residents report all property damage and losses to the Emergency Operations (EOC) Hotline at 225-686-3996 or via email at EOC@lpgov.com.
The information needed is: owner name, address, telephone numbers, type of damage, inches of water in home and whether residents have insurance.
The Hotline will be in operation Tuesday- Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Parish needs this information to submit to FEMA in order to request federal assistance for residents. Residents may also begin their paperwork process by visiting here: http://www.fema.gov/disaster/4263.
