There are several places that have done their best to collect all information regarding the flooding in Louisiana into a central location. Some of the sites below are comprehensive in their coverage of the flooding and of flood support resources in the community.
- WAFB’s list of assistance and relief information is an alphabetized collection of service organizations here and in New Orleans, and how to contact them for aid.
- The Louisiana Flood 2016 site can be slow due to heavy usage, but in particular has a section on volunteer opportunities for people who want to give their time, but aren’t sure who to contact or where to start.
- The library’s Disaster Recovery infoguide is updated frequently with additional links to information and resources.
- The governor’s office has created a page of Resources for Flood Victims, which covers available state and federal aid sources for finding temporary housing, registering damages for FEMA, recovering your business, and more.
- Flood Help Louisiana is a site designed to connect contractors, shelters, volunteers, food drives, and more with people who need them. People who have something to give can register what they’re offering, and people who need help can register to be connected with someone who can help them.
The National Guard has set up points of distribution (PODs) at the following locations:
- Miracle Place Church 2080 Main St., Baker
