The first registration team from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be at the Webster Parish Police Jury Annex, the former Regions Bank Building, at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 15, to begin registering flood victims for federal assistance.
John Stanley, director of the Webster Parish Homeland Security and Office of Emergency Preparedness, says if people have already registered by calling in or on the available website, then there is no need to come in.
“If you have registered by phone or by website, then you don’t have to come in,” he said. “If you have not done it, then you need to come in.”
For those who still wish to register for federal assistance via phone or website, the phone number is 1-800-621-3362 or online at www.disasterassistance.gov.
Flood victims need to document as much as possible, including photographs and marking the highest water line inside their home.
When registering over the phone or online, include name, address, town, how much water was inside the home or business, whether it is a primary dwelling, camp or rental property, if it is insured for flooding, residential or commercial.
