SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL EXPECTED IN AREA

IN COMING DAYS

 

Mathews, LA – Lafourche Parish and all of south Louisiana are expected to receive significant rainfall in the coming days as a weather system passes over the area.  The heaviest rains are expected on Thursday and Friday with the potential of as much as a foot of rain possible. 

Parish officials urge residents to pick up any loose items in yards that may be blown away by strong winds and to remove any obstructions from drainage ditches on their property so that water may drain properly. 

“We’re asking residents to be watchful of the weather in the coming days and take all the proper precautions to protect their property and families. Please keep up with the latest weather reports from the National Weather Service and local media,” said Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle.
