Baton Rouge, LA -- From the first person who calls to register on the toll-free number, 800-621-FEMA (3362), to the last one, all will be served according to state and federal disaster recovery officials. The FEMA number continues to be important for Louisiana residents who suffered losses from tropical storm Isidore and Hurricane Lili. If you have damages from the new storm and have already called the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for tropical storm Isidore, you should call FEMA again to register your new losses.
