let’s have a game plan
In south Louisiana, as we know, we have weathered our fair share of storms. We want to help our citizens in Abbeville create a game plan for this hurricane season. We have gathered information for you in order to have all the helpful links you need in one area.
If you plan to stay in Abbeville for the storm, make sure you gather supplies and set up a “hurricane box” for things you may need in case the electricity goes out in our area. Find a list of hurricane supplies here:
If there is a need to evacuate and you need to map out where you’re going, we have a link to the Louisiana Evacuation Route Map here:
Vermilion Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness has a list of important phone numbers during times of emergency.
If you need governmental assistance after a storm due to damages, you are encouraged to call FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) at 1-800-621-FEMA as soon as possible. Make sure to take pictures of damages before commencing in any cleanup efforts. One can also file an application for assistance at the link below.
