Louisiana Earth will also serve as a mechanism to relay critical data during disasters to help inform public on the status of response & recovery efforts. During hurricanes and other natural disasters, Louisiana will be able to provide information such as location of points of distribution (PODs), food stamp offices, unemployment claims offices, disaster recovery centers as well as the status of parishes’ power outages. Public will also be able to take advantage of the many activities and cultural events, such as festivals available in Louisiana.
