Louisiana Update

Louisiana Insurance Commissioner Robert Wooley recently met with Cameron parish Emergency Preparedness officials to discuss some of their concerns following Hurricane Rita. He concluded that the town of Cameron, which is at the southern-most edge of Cameron Parish, suffered devastation similar to what lower Plaquemines and St. Bernard Parishes experienced with Katrina.

Cameron Parish would like to implement a grid system similar to that being used in Plaquemines and St. Bernard. Cameron Parish officials indicated they would provide get their grid proposal to the Department. In the meantime, the Commissioner is requesting that adjusters head to the town of Cameron so that the debris removal process can more effectively proceed and so that parish government can get back up and running.

More Hurricane related information is available from the Louisiana Department's web site.
