The levees are holding in Gueydan, but the waters are still rising. Mayor Chris Theriot posted this message via the Geuydan Facebook page, urging residents to be cautious and calling for a volunteer evacuation.
South Louisiana has seen unprecedented floods that have destroyed thousands of homes, and are responsible for at least 11 deaths so far. Many people I've spoken with have asked, why isn't this being covered on the national news? The New York Times public editor has noticed as well, and says they have neglected their duty in reporting to the world the devastation we're experiencing with the Louisiana flood.
I've been thinking a lot about flood protection the past few days as I'm seeing thousands of homes in Acadiana flooded. It got me thinking, why haven't we figured out some better ways to protect our homes from flooding yet? Sure, we have sandbags, but sometimes that's not enough. I did some searching and found this product called 'DoorDam'. Do you think this would work for us down here?
One of the most important things needed in disaster situations like we have in South Louisiana is contact information. Who do you call to report damage? Who do you call for help? How do you even begin to recover? There is certain protocol for recovery and for reporting damage, and below is who to call for every Parish in Louisiana.
