Southeast Louisiana prepares for Tropical Storm Sally

Local News

ASCENSION PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) — As Tropical Storm Sally makes its way through the Gulf Coast, officials in Southeast Louisiana continue to make resources available to prepare for the storm.

Jill Townsend, a Prairieville resident says she is prepared, thanks to supplies left over from Hurricane Laura.

“We’ve got gas and water and groceries, so I think at this point that is what we need,” she said. “We have a generator, too.”

But Townsend remains concerned about the storm costing her kids more days of in-classroom schooling.

Baton Rouge area officials are providing sandbags in the Baton Rouge area.

Officials at the Galvez Fire Department say they have not seen many residents collecting sandbags for Tropical Storm Sally, since they prepared for Hurricane Laura about three weeks ago.

The latest on the storm will be available here.
