DRC in Shreveport to be temporarily closed

FEMA is closing the drive-thru Disaster Recovery Center in Shreveport due to predicted inclement weather.

The Leesville DRC will reopen on Sept. 25. The Shreveport location will open when it is safe to do so.

Other drive-thru locations as well as other FEMA operations may also be affected by inclement weather.
Several other centers remain open in Louisiana. Survivors may visit any open center. To locate the closest center, call the FEMA Helpline, visit www.DisasterAssistance.gov or egateway.fema.gov/ESF6/DRCLocator or download the FEMA Mobile App at fema.gov/about/news-multimedia/app.
Survivors do not need to visit a drive-thru center to apply for disaster assistance or update their application. To ask questions or submit information:
Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, Innocaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their specific number assigned to that service.
