Hurricane Isaac victims still uninformed on how to get help

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 - 4:36pm

Fema has found that lots of people still do not know how to get help, 6 weeks after Hurricane Isaac so they are going door to door to tell people that there are still recovery centers where they can go to get answers.

A group of Fema employees walked through neighborhoods in Plaquemine this afternoon talking to people whose homes were damaged in the storm.

They handed out fliers with phone numbers to call and told people how to get to the recovery center on Bayou Road.

They heard from many people whose homes had not been fixed, and would not have asked for money if they had not walked by.
Fema has given out more than 100 million dollars to Louisiana residents affected by Isaac.

Some of its recovery centers have closed, but the locations in Plaquemine, Livingston, and Maurepas are still open.
