Baton Rouge, LA -- A Mobile Disaster Relief Center (DRC) will open in La Place on Friday, October 11, at the Percy V. Hebert Building, 1802 W. Airline Highway, and remain through Sunday, October 13. The DRC will assist those affected by damage and losses caused by Tropical Storm Isidore and Hurricane Lili. Fixed site DRCs also are open in Slidell, Houma, St. Bernard and New Orleans.
Additional sites for mobile DRCs will be announced.
Disaster recovery officials strongly suggest applicants register before they come to the DRCs in order to avoid delays.
It is necessary to call FEMA's toll-free teleregistration number, 800-621-FEMA (3362), for losses from Hurricane Lili even if you have already called for damages from Tropical Storm Isidore. People with hearing or speech impairments may call (TTY) 800-462-7585.
The centers are staffed by personnel who can answer questions and provide recovery information and written materials about various assistance programs. They do not provide food, clothing or money at these centers.
