The National Weather Service will be investigating numerous tornadic activity throughout SELA over the next couple days.

OHSEP has requested a Damage Assessment Team from the National Weather Service to assist in conducting damage assessment. Five injuries were reported throughout today’s entire event, with two low intensity tornados possible (but unconfirmed at this time). 


The threat for severe weather is no longer in effect. Flash flooding is not expected; therefore; sandbag locations that previously opened during todays’ weather events will be closed at the end of the day today.


Areas that received flash flooding should have, or are in the process of, draining out. OHSEP has been in coordination with DPW throughout this event coordinating tree removal, debris pickup, and the operation of the pumping station. 


As of this announcement, 243 Entergy Residents, and 860 Demco residents are without power
Due to several events throughout the state today, The American Red Cross has asked any resident seeking assistance to please call the Red Cross Hotline at 1-800-733-2767.


Again, Damage assessments teams will be out in the affected areas of South East Louisiana over the next several days, in an effort to streamline insurance claims.


Wonderful job today by all Ascension Parish First Responders, including the Fire Departments, APSO, and Acadian Ambulance. 

If you need further assistance from our office, please contact 225-450-1202.
