We have been in contact with and are making arrangements to get Damage Assessment Teams along with the Red Cross into Allen Parish to aid those who have been impacted by flood waters. I am encouraging everyone who has been impacted by the flooding to begin documenting (photographs, lost wages, etc. ) those losses as soon as possible. However, please do not attempt to return to homes or property until it is safe to do so. I will be notifying everyone as soon a date and time has been arranged.
