St. Tammany Parish closed the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Disaster Recovery Center in Covington on Thursday, but the Slidell center, on the first floor of the Towers Administrative Building, 520 Old Spanish Trail, is still open to help residents who have suffered losses from last month’s flooding.
The Slidell location will provide access to help from multiple agencies. FEMA and Small Business Administration personnel will be available to answer questions.
Also, the Northshore Home Builders Association is hosting an event for flooded property owners, called Housing Central, from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Bogue Falaya Hall, 317 N. Jefferson Ave., Covington.
State and local agencies, including the Louisiana Insurance Commission and the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors, will be at the event to help homeowners with their recovery efforts.
Building permit offices from Amite, Covington, Hammond and St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington parishes will have representatives on hand.
The American Red Cross and the Food Bank of Covington also will be represented.
