St. Tammany Parish Government in Preparedness Posture
Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President, her administration and emergency operations personnel continue to monitor any potential impacts of Potential Tropical Cyclone Two, currently located in the Gulf of Mexico, and forecast to possibly become a tropical depression later this week. Parish Government is following its emergency planning, and has instituted its Storm in the Gulf protocols. Although the predicted path of this system by the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center modeling has not pinpointed the severity of the impact to St. Tammany at this time, Parish Government remains prepared for any predicted impacts.
Parish Officials will continue to closely monitor 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 receiving constant updates concerning the track of Potential Tropical Cyclone Two as it gains strength in the Gulf.
Based upon the forecast, Parish Government will announce any emergency preparedness information to the public through the local media, our website, and through social media on Facebook and Twitter. Citizens can also sign up to receive automatic email updates from the Parish by visiting www.stpgov.org.
