Kinder town clerk: FEMA hard to contact

John Taylor, town clerk for Kinder, said, "We've had phone service fine in city hall all week long, but we can't seem to make any headway with contact with FEMA."

Taylor said it's his understanding from the governor's office that Allen Parish is included in the federal disaster area, but it seems that "FEMA doesn't know that."

Taylor said he is working with U.S. Rep. Jim McCrery to try to find out how to get FEMA into the parish.
