BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — 30,000 blue roofs have been installed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.

“I’m so proud of the team’s incredible efforts in this mission,” said USACE Hurricane Ida Response Team Commander Col. Zachary Miller. “We continue to work closely with our contractors and the public to ensure the remaining roofs are installed as quickly as possible.”

Operation Blue Roof offers homeowners temporary repairs to their storm-damaged roofs until permanent repairs can be made, according to FEMA officials.

The deadline to apply to the program was Oct. 15.
