St. Tammany Parish Implements Storm in the Gulf Protocols
St. Tammany Parish has implemented its "Storm in the Gulf" protocols in response to Tropical Storm Gordon. Based on the projected path, St. Tammany Parish could see impacts from this storm. The St. Tammany Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is receiving continual updates from the National Weather Service and is monitoring the track of this system
We will continue to update the public about our emergency operations 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 stay tuned to forecast updates from the National Weather Service. In addition, 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. If you live in a low-lying area prone to flooding from heavy rain, or higher than normal tides, please pay attention to the forecasts. We ask that you clear storm drains, follow your family plan for a storm event, and pay close attention to weather forecasts and Parish officials as the storm moves into the Gulf of Mexico.
