Responses may take time until conditions on the ground are safe. Services are free but not guaranteed.
- Operation Blue Roof has been activated by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers. Homeowners and rental properties may qualify for fiber-reinforced sheeting to cover damaged rooftops until arrangements for repairs are made. The Blue Roof will protect the property and allows residents to live inside the home. Current qualifying Parishes are Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson Davis, and Vernon. Residents in these parishes can use a smartphone to sign up at www.usace.army.mil/BlueRoof or by calling 888-ROOF-BLUE (888-766-3258) For more visit: https://www.mvn.usace.army.mil/Missions/Emergency-Operations/Blue-Roof-Information/
