OPELOUSAS – St. Landry Parish Government officials are asking residents to help the parish identify damage caused by the severe weather and tornado on April 9th and 10th by visiting damage.la.gov.
Residents whose home or business have experienced storm damage due to this weekend’s severe weather or the Plametto tornado are asked to complete an online Damage Assessment Form. This information not only documents the impact of the storm on individuals, families, and businesses; it also assists the parish in qualifying for future federal funding.
To complete the form online, visit damage.la.gov.
Residents and business owners are being asked to complete the form on their mobile phones if possible so that pictures of the damage can be attached when submitting the form. Photo assists the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness with categorizing the damage.
Reporting damage to GOHSEP is important but voluntary. This does not replace reporting damage to insurance companies and does not guarantee disaster relief assistance.
