Did you suffer home damage from Hurricane Laura? Residents of Lake Charles and other nearby areas of Louisiana may want to learn more about how FEMA is reaching out. Those who suffered home damage may still need help, and FEMA wants to know.
There are people who still do not have homes. According to media reports, a new program is under way to send text messages and automated phone calls. The name of this initiative is “FEMA Needs to Hear From You.”
The eligible should apply
Temporary housing solutions are available to those who meet the eligibility requirements. Their homes must have incurred destruction or been severely damaged. There has been a problem reaching people who are eligible, about 1500 homes.
Checking in with others
Those who did report that they were okay will receive contact updates. 6000 households reported that they had found housing, usually within the home while the repairs are happening, after they received funds for hurricane claim damages.
Some people are living in a FEMA trailer at present and are very grateful. Instead of living at an array of hotels, they now have a real housing solution.
What is the deadline?
If you want to apply, fill out an application. You should also explain your situation to FEMA. You can reach them by phone at (800) 621-3362 or by applying before the deadline of May 28th.
If you have been harmed by severe storm, it may be wise to consult an attorney with experience in claims from this sort of disaster. They may help you smooth the way through unwanted disruptions, whether to your family, your business or your home.
