Hurricane Laura - Time to Prepare

Hurricane Laura - Time to Prepare

As Hurricane Laura continues strengthening into potential Category 4 storm, the NHC warns of an "unsurvivable storm surge," for parts of the Louisiana and Eastern Texas coast. 

Forecasters predict surges several feet high could reach nearly to Interstate 10 in Louisiana, endangering cities like Lake Charles, and others some 35 miles inland. Only a few hours remain to protect life and property.

  • Texas residence seeking to evacuate should consider DriveTexas.org.
  • Louisiana, residence should consider 511la.org

Both sites provide accurate and timely highway conditions information. The information displayed is updated 24 hours a day and maps automatically refresh at 5-minute intervals when viewing the sites.

Governmental municipalities, community group associations and commercial businessowners should have enacted their Emergency Preparedness and Response plan. All entities, regardless of whether or not they are in the highlighted “cone of uncertainty,” should understand the risks, potential impacts, and prepare accordingly. As always, please heed evacuation orders and instructions from local emergency management officials.

Business continuity plans should be promptly assessed in order to take action to protect employees, customers, and to avoid disruption of business operations. Be sure to secure your property as best you can before evacuating and take any necessary paperwork with you. Take photos of pre-storm conditions.
