I would have to hope that it would be an "act of God" kind of extenuating circumstance.
I don't have any answers for you. I hope you get through this storm okay in the first place, and then get your SS taken care of asap once the state of emergency is over.

If you're still around and not evacuating yet, I had a thought. Well, scruffysmom actually had the thought, but I wasn't thinking last night when I answered. :rolleyes:
Even if you can't reach anyone specifically, if it comes down to it, you could probably "report" to a local authority so it would at the very least be on record that you attempted.
Maybe that idea sucks, but it's all I could come up with.
I hope you were able to call someone in the know.

jaccommando78,
Here are the numbers the LA DOC site lists as emergency hurricane lines for probation and parole. I would try these and ask them what they suggest.
1-866-380-4235 or 225-219-1836

Goldenglove had a good suggestion as well. Make sure that if the people you try and report to say go home...get their name!!! Always good to have good notes! ;)
Stay safe you guys!! That's the most important!!!

Ah - VERY good suggestion, Spunky, thanks for thinking of and adding that!!

I'd add to it and say no matter WHAT they say - make sure you get their name! Can't hurt and can only help :yes:
