At the September 10 Plaquemines Parish Council Meeting, the council heard an update from Melissa Kennedy, the representative from HNTB Corporation responsible for analyzing and mapping flood risks in the parish. The maps created from her findings will be submitted to FEMA so parish residents’ insurance rates can be accurate and up to date with current flood hazards.
As many residents evacuated to escape the path of Hurricane Laura, many of them found temporary refuge in New Orleans. For those able to bring their pets, they struggled to find pet-friendly housing, and some hotels were only pet-friendly for a limited time. Being located in New Orleans, we know just how devastating and stressful hurricanes can be so we knew we had to do anything we could to h elp those in need.
