Caddo Parish citizens who have businesses or homes damaged by the flood are being asked to report those damages this week to the Caddo Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
FEMA teams are expected in Caddo Parish next week and will use the information to tour the area and assess property damage.
Citizens can either e-mail their information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Caddo OHSEP at 675-2260 to speak to a call taker. The phone line will be manned from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. After hours, callers can leave their information on voice mail and they will be re-contacted the following day.
Citizens should be prepared to provide the following:
Do you own or rent the impacted structure?
Do you have flood insurance?
Did you evacuate the structure?

Law enforcement is reminding motorists that it is illegal to disregard a barricade that is being used to close a street for public safety reasons. Tickets will be issued to violators.
