Employees say a shell gas station on O’Neal lane has run out of gas after 10 out of the 12 pumps are not in service.

As Barry’s arrival on land quickly approaches Louisiana residents are preparing for the worst by filling their tanks up with gas and grabbing a little extra just in case.

“We’re getting it while we can,” resident Cecile Martin said.

Other residents like Tracey Payton, who has undergone other natural disasters, says this time is different because she’s prepared.

“The 2016 flood just came up on us so quick, we wasn’t prepared for it,” Payton said.

Families like the Martin’s filled multiple gas cans for their generator just in case they lose power.

“We need this much gas [for the generator] to keep it running,” Martin said.  

Filling up as much as they can and getting every last drop of gas, these residents say now that they have gas, they are prepared for what happens if Barry Brings destruction

Meteorologists say Barry is supposed to touch down any time between 7pm Friday night and 7am Saturday morning.
