Navigating the Federal Emergency Management Agency – Fact Sheets

FEMA Fact SheetsThe Louisiana Sea Grant Law & Policy Program has developed a series of information sheets and narrated presentations to help those affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita navigate Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) programs and related legal issues during the ongoing rebuilding process. The information sheets and presentations answer questions about the National Flood Insurance Program, flood elevations, rebuilding after a flood and other reconstruction matters.

Jefferson Parish Lakefront Restoration

Jefferson Parish Lakefront RestorationHurricane Katrina made landfall in late August 2005 followed four weeks later by Hurricane Rita. Flood and wind damage occurred along much of the Gulf of Mexico coast, including southern Louisiana. This report, developed by Louisiana State University senior landscape architecture students working with the East Jefferson Parish Levee Board, contains proposals for providing storm protection along Lake Pontchartrain by rebuilding wetlands and coastal marsh where both existed prior to urban development in the Bucktown and surrounding neighborhoods.

New Orleans Community Rebuilding & Hazard Mitigation

New Orleans Community Rebuilding & Hazard MitigationFollowing Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, faculty and senior landscape architecture students at Louisiana State University decided to research and cultivate appropriate strategies for rebuilding New Orleans, with an emphasis on developing non-structural and land use plans. Each student selected an area or neighborhood in the New Orleans area to focus on in greater depth. The following document contains a summary of the work accomplished by the students.

A Town Too Smart to Die
Louisiana Sea Grant Assists Delcambre, La., During Hurricane Recovery

In September 2005, Hurricane Rita pushed a 10-foot storm surge into the town of Delcambre and across surrounding agricultural fields. The surge flooded all but 25 of the 903 structures in the town’s corporate limits. With the assistance of Louisiana Sea Grant, a recovery steering committee composed of community members drafted a business plan to revitalize the local economy by filling a niche for a working waterfront that will support the fishing industry between Intracoastal City and Morgan City. The following report outlines the committee’s objectives as well as obstacles which need to be overcome.
