Friends,

Hurricane Laura has now been upgraded to a Category 4 and its current path is set to make a direct hit on our district. If it continues on this trajectory, this could be a catastrophic event for our area.

It is critical that we take the necessary precautions now to keep everyone safe. Please make certain you have everything on your emergency checklist (find helpful reminders here), follow evacuation orders, stay up to date with local news, and keep emergency numbers on hand.

Let’s all prepare for the worst, but hope and pray for the best. This will be the strongest storm Louisiana has faced in many years, but our people are even STRONGER. Together, we will get through this.
