People in Livingston Parish using sandbags from Hurricane Laura to prepare for Hurricane Sally

News

LIVINGSTON PARISH, La. (LOCAL 33/FOX 44) – Some people living in Livingston Parish have an easier time getting ready for Hurricane Sally because of Hurricane Laura.

Sandpiles are out across Livingston Parish. There’s not much activity happening around them. That’s because many people like Dustin August are getting ready for Hurricane Sally with sandbags they already have.

“I actually sandbagged a couple weeks ago for Hurricane Laura. So, I guess I was about ready to pick them up and then saw this storm coming and just said, well, I should just leave them out there,” said August.

That’s what Livingston Parish leaders are encouraging you to do. Any sandbags you picked up from the last storm can be used this time and until the end of hurricane season.

August added, “Just hoping to stay dry inside and get through this storm like we do the rest.”
