Correction: Outreach scheduled for flood-impacted homeowners

Greg Fischer Editor-in-chief

A community outreach for flood-impacted homeowners remains scheduled for 3-7 p.m. at St. Amant High School in Ascension Parish on Thursday, June 29.

However, the FEMA Fact Sheet presented in the original article could be misleading, since although FEMA has done its part the Restore La. Taskforce is in charge of helping flood victims from here. Restore La. is a State agency resulting from additional grants because the disaster that occurred went to "another level," according to FEMA Media Relations Manager Kurt Pickering in an email.

FEMA has asked that it be made clear that while they have been directly involved in the recovery process, they are not in charge of the latest flood outreach programs. The article seems to suggest that. Our intent by adding the FEMA Fact Sheet was to dispel confusion. We apologize for the mistake.
