The Governor's Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management and FEMA are teaming up to better understand the wants and needs of Hurricane Laura and Delta survivors.

They've created an online survey for SWLA residents to take so they can pool government resources to where our specific needs are. It's an eight question survey, so it won't take long to complete.

They're also going to open a Multi-Agency Resource Center in Lake Charles to find Hurricane Laura and Delta survivors the assistance they need. The Resource Center will work with voluntary agencies and state/federal agencies to provide aid. If you can't take the survey online, call 202-322-3958. All responses are confidential and anonymous.

I was driving around Lake Charles, Westlake, and Moss Bluff this weekend. It's crazy to see businesses still closed and debris still piled on the edges of roads close to six months after Hurricane Laura. You also have to take into consideration that we were prepared for the aftermath of Laura with our experience with Hurricane Rita. Imagine how our area would look if this was our first rodeo. My heart breaks for SWLA because  it may be years before we recover from these storms. Please take the time to take the survey above. It will help our area get more funding and resources to aid our ongoing recovery.
