Louisiana GOHSEP urges those impacted by winter storms to fill out damage surveys

Local

The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is seeking information from anyone who received damage due to the winter weather event this week.

BATON ROUGE, La. (KTAL/KMSS)  – The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is seeking information from anyone who received damage due to the winter weather event this week. 

The state is also working to get help to repair water systems and assessing whether there is enough damage to warrant a request for a federal disaster declaration and individual federal disaster assistance for those affected. President Joe Biden approved Louisiana’s federal emergency declaration request on Thursday.

The governor’s office says the self-reporting survey, which can be found at damage.la.gov, will help local and state emergency managers collect data to move forward with the recovery process. 

They say this step should not replace reporting damage to your insurance agency.

Anyone impacted by the winter storm should fill out the survey to report damage to their home or business (structures only, no vehicles). 

The state also notes that the survey is voluntary and does not guarantee any federal disaster relief assistance, but says it will be beneficial in assisting with the damage assessment process in Louisiana related to this event.
