REMINDER: The best way to help in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Laura is to donate directly to response organizations on the ground in Southwest Louisiana. Please do not drop off physical goods, neither in the affected area nor at shelters for evacuees, unless specifically requested.
211: Citizens in need of services should dial 211 or text 898-211. This confidential helpline is available 24/7/365. 211 receives calls during natural and manmade disasters as part of the statewide 211 system, providing vital non-emergency information before, during and after the event.
