Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre is urging citizens to complete hurricane preparations today (Sunday, September 13) with Tropical Storm Sally projected to strengthen and bring hurricane conditions to our area in the next 36 hours. The administrative offices of the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office will be closed on Monday, September 14, and offices will remain closed until the threat of the storm has passed.
Residents can rest assured that all necessary functions required to serve and protect our communities are in place as we are proactively doubling our patrol section and utilizing all available equipment throughout the duration of the threat of the storm. In the event of an emergency, please call 911. For non-emergencies, call (985) 532-2808.
Sheriff Webre encourages all residents to complete storm preparations today (Sunday). Tropical storm force winds are expected to arrive on Monday. Residents should ensure ditches and catch basins are cleared of any debris or obstructions. Secure any loose items outside your home and around your property. Check your storm supply kits and be sure you have enough food and water in case electricity is lost for several days.
