Lafayette Parish residents who have experienced property damage from yesterday’s severe rain event are encouraged self-report damages to the state.

According to LCG, those reports will be provided to the Lafayette Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

The state will use the self-reporting damage survey to assess the type of damage that occurred. The state and each parish must meet a dollar amount threshold to be eligible for federal assistance.

"This is the first step in the recovery process and does not guarantee disaster relief assistance."
