St. Tammany Parish Officials Closely Monitoring Tropical Wave
Invest 91L, a tropical wave, is now located in the Southern Bahamas. There still exists some uncertainty as far as the path of this system, but forecasters expect it to enter the eastern Gulf of Mexico early Monday. Parish Officials are closely watching this system and are asking residents to do the same. The St. Tammany Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is receiving continual updates from the National Weather Service and is closely monitoring the track of this system.
Based upon the forecast track, we will announce any emergency preparedness plans to the public as they happen through the local media, our website at www.stpgov.org/departments/hsep, through social media on Facebook and Twitter. Sign up to receive automatic email updates from the Parish on our website, www.stpgov.org.
We are asking all residents to prepare for the possibility of a localized rain event, assure that all family members are accounted for and have a safe place to shelter from any potential foul weather. We ask that you pay close attention to weather forecasts and Parish officials as the storm moves into the Gulf of Mexico. For more storm preparation tips visit www.ready.gov.
