LIVINGSTON, La (BRPROUD)– Over in Livingston Parish, many families are staying prepared. Work is underway to reduce potential impacts for soon-to-be Hurricane Laura. Several grocery stores in Livingston Parish were slammed with people stocking up on essentials. Resident Amber Taylor is terrified of a repeat of the floods of 2016.
Livingston Parish President Layton Ricks says more than 7,000 sandbags and tons of sand are now available in the parish.
The parish’s emergency operations center is in operation 24/7 until the threat passes.
“We are here. We have been preparing for this as much as you can be. We have been doing a lot of canal cleanup and drainage way cleanup for the last several years so we are about as ready as you can be.” Ricks says.
