After hurricanes Laura and Delta shredded through many parts of Louisiana. Thousands of residents were displaced and are still seeking temporary housing.
Tiana Suber is urging the community to have a prevention plan in place ahead of time.

"Just having a plan because mother nature keeps rolling and we just want people to have less loss and have more prevention when disaster's come along"

FEMA promised to deliver alternative housing for residents whose homes were destroyed in hurricanes laura and delta suber says this is fema's number one priority.

"Because we want to make sure that everyone has a roof over there head and at least for temporary time that they can have a place to live until they execute there permanent housing solutions"

To be eligible for FEMA's temporary housing you must have lived in one the the twelve designated parishes, be a homeowner or renter whose home was destroyed or damaged, the home was a total loss or is not safe, sanitary and functional to live in as a result of hurricanes laura and delta.

Having a emergency plan in place in the event of a natural disaster can save lives and prevent lots of damage... Suber wants to encourage the community to develop a family disaster plan as it prevents loss by 25%.

"We want you to develop a family plan a family disaster plan have a evacuation plan have an evacuation route you know have a bag of extra clothes and things in case you have to evacuate"
