Hurricane Laura has left catastrophic damage in its wake. Many Calcasieu Parish residents have lost their homes or need to get significant repairs but are having problems getting what they need.

To help homeowners understand their policies, file claims, answer questions, or take complaints, the Louisiana Department of Insurance and its Office of Consumer Advocacy and Diversity set up a local Residential Resource Center, according to 107-JAMZ.

The center is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Henry Heights Recreation Center in Lake Charles. Residents can meet one-on-one with a representative for assistance.
