BATON ROUGE, LA – State Treasurer John Kennedy asked Louisianians impacted by the historic flooding to keep these important phone numbers handy.
These numbers and websites are what people need to file for federal disaster assistance, file a flood insurance claim or to find volunteer opportunities. As of now, the parishes of East Baton Rouge, Livingston, St. Helena and Tangipahoa have been declared major disaster areas.
“The flooding impacted thousands of people. A number of people lost everything,” said Treasurer Kennedy. “If you’re trying to register for assistance on FEMA’s website and can’t, please be patient and keep trying.”
