HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) -

The Louisiana Workforce Commission is hosting a hiring event for those workers who were displaced by August's major flooding. 

The event will be held on Friday, October 28 in Hammond at 1745 Southwest Railroad Ave. Workers will be able to apply for Tangipahoa and Livingston Parish debris removal services, as well as other cleanup opportunities. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In order to qualify for a job at the event, applicants must prove they have been unemployed for at least 13 weeks and that they lost their job directly due to the flooding.

The LWC will be on-hand to provide assistance to those applying for unemployment for the first time.
