ABSTRACT

Hurricane Ida Preparation and Response   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Introduction: "Pursuant to a legislative request, we evaluated the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness' (GOHSEP) preparation for and response to Hurricane Ida. Due to the extraordinary threat posed by Hurricane Ida, which made landfall on Sunday, August 29, 2021, the President of the United States designated 25 parishes ('see text box at right') in his emergency declaration. Exhibit 1 shows the track and wind speed of Hurricane Ida. This audit focused on parish emergency operations plans (EOPs), pre-awarded emergency contracts, resource requests through GOHSEP's web-based Emergency Operations Center (WebEOC) system, communication issues, and the state's program for providing temporary housing for dislocated residents."
