Stansbury: Emergency Personnel Getting Supplies To Those In Need
Emergency personnel are responding to many situations around Acadiana, even after the rains have stopped.
In Lafayette Parish, Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness Director Craig Stansbury told KPEL's Bernadette Lee and Rob Kirkpatrick that first responders are focusing on getting supplies to areas of the parish that are surrounded by water.
He said the first responders, and volunteers, worked as fast as they could to respond to a record number of emergency calls and rescues since the flooding event began.
"Everyone worked very well together," Stansbury said. "We had a record number of calls. Response was excellent on all parts of all of the first responders."
Stansbury said his office received over 650 calls of homes being flooded as of Sunday morning. That number will probably grow into the thousands, he said.
