RECOVERY

Friends,

 As we are coming out of the response to this storm, we are faced with the task of recovering from this. We are doing our best to assess all damages in our Parish. As we assess these damages, we would like to make sure not to miss anyone who may have suffered some kind of damage to their home.

As always you can call the Sheriff's Office to make a report, but you can also call your local city hall to make these reports. GOHSEP has provided a link to put this information in by us or you can do this yourself.

This is the link:    DAMAGE.LA.GOV

 

In addition, as we proceed, we need to let you know that FEMA is back at the Civic Center in Oberlin, La. To assist you with your FEMA claim needs.

A document to assist you with self-filing is provided here to help if you are unable to get to Oberlin, to file a claim with FEMA

POD Locations

Friends,

 As we are proceeding into some kind of normal in the parish. Power is being slowly restored to most. Unfortunately some will still be without power for a little longer. 

We have decided to close the Elizabeth, Oakdale, Oberlin and Kinder PODs. Our goal is to get our local economy restarted.

The PODS at Reeves and Grant shall remain open longer due to the lack of power in those areas. If you need these supplies that are at these sites, please utilize them and go to those POD locations.

PODs are in operation from 8am to 4pm daily until the are closed.

BE SAFE AND GOD BLESS!!

ROAD CONDITIONS UPDATE

Friends,   The Allen Parish Sheriff's Office would like to remind our residents about the curfew that is still in effect for the entire parish from 8 pm to 6 am. This curfew will be strictly enforced.   Please also be advised that as night time falls, the water covering roadways may not be visible. Roads along low-lying river areas that may have been accessible today may not be accessible tonight through Tuesday as the river is and will continue rising.   LA 26 (Near Mittie at Whiskey Chitto River) from MP 22.5 to MP 23.8 is closed due to high water.   Stay safe and God bless!

ROAD CLOSURES

Friends,
  We are currently working to assess the damages from Hurricane Delta. The mandatory evacuation order has been lifted at this time; however the curfew is still in place from 8 pm to 6 am. To those of our residents who evacuated, please call (337)639-3081 to make sure your road is clear before returning. 

We will be providing a current list of road closures. We are also working closely with your electric companies for power restoration time frames. We appreciate your patience and understanding during our recovery efforts.

If you do not have to leave your home, please do not at this time as many of our roads are impassable due to water and trees. Please do not attempt to remove any trees or debris that may have electric lines in or around them.
