Saturday, Oct. 12 was a tragic morning in downtown New Orleans when the under-construction Hard Rock Hotel partially collapsed, killing three victims and wounding more than 20 others.
The city of New Orleans is taking steps to aid the community of those who have been displaced. Road and building closures are prohibiting residents and employees from getting to their homes and jobs.
Employees whose work situation has been adversely affected may reach out to the Louisiana Workforce Commission for unemployment insurance consideration. Businesses in the evacuation zone are encouraged to complete this response survey as soon as possible.
