Jindal issues state emergency for Ike; writes to President

1:24 PM Sun, Sep 07, 2008 |
Chad Bower

Governor Bobby Jindal issued a declaration of a state of emergency in Louisiana Sunday in preparation for Hurricane Ike.

He also wrote a letter to President Bush asking for a Pre-Landfall Federal Disaster Declaration, saying that the prospect of Ike's landfall could be so severe that the state would not have the resources to respond.

"I anticipate that the effects of the storm will overwhelm the capability of state resources and it is necessary that critical pre-positioning and other readiness requirements be provided through federal assistance," Jindal said in the letter.

The state of emergency extends from Sep. 6 to Oct. 5, unless terminated sooner.

Residents can call a toll-free telephone number, 1-888-Roof-Blu (1-888-766-3258), to find out the location of the Blue Roof Right of Entry collection sites in their parish.

4. The structure must be assessed as habitable once the blue roof is installed.
5. All debris must be removed from the roof for it to qualify.
6. The applicant has to sign a right-of-entry form.

The program is run by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisiana Recovery Field Office, in Baton Rouge, as assigned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
