Phone service has been restored to normal.
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
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!!
