Disaster Declaration

From the Lafayette Daily Advertiser:

Lafayette, Iberia and Acadia parishes have been added to the federal disaster declaration, qualifying individuals for federal assistance in the wake of Hurricane Rita, said Amy Jones, spokesperson for Congressman Charles Boustany, R-Lafayette.

Roxi called me with the news this afternoon so I verified it and let my dad know. My parents might qualify considering the extent of the damage to their roof and house. It hasn't been appraised yet but I do know that the removal of the trees alone was very costly. Although my parents do have insurance that will most likely cover the damages to the house, any little bit of help will be nice in case the insurance company drags out the processing of their claim for more than a few days.
