3 weeks ago today, Hurricane Ida made landfall and devastated the Bayou Parish's across South Louisiana. While there are still parts of our Parish without power and water, TPCG is still working diligently with the responsible companies to restore services as soon as possible. The destruction to our infrastructure and homes caused by Ida was severe however Terrebonne Parish has made tremendous strides for recovery over the past 3 weeks.
•ENTERGY has restored power to 83% of their customers.
I have also been in daily communications with the State and Federal Government to expedite the temporary housing situation. THEY NEED TO PROVIDE TEMPORARY HOUSING TO OUR PEOPLE SO WE CAN START REBUILDING OUR COMMUNITIES ASAP! The response times from them are never as fast as we would like it but help is on the way. I will continue to fight daily until the last person has a roof over their head!
Again I want to thank all our Government Employees, Law Enforcement Agencies, Fire Fighters, Health Care Workers, Utility Linemen, and all other volunteers and contract workers that made this progress faster than expected!
As I traveled throughout the Parish over the last 3 weeks, the unity of the people of Terrebonne Parish helping one another is truly a blessing. I witnessed communities supporting their neighbors. People that suffered tremendous loss helping others to provide basic needs. This is a true testament to the people of Terrebonne!! While we know the rebuilding process will take some time, I have confidence in the people of Terrebonne that we will get through this TOGETHER. We are Terrebonne! Terrebonne Strong!!! Terrebonne "The Good Earth."
