PRESS RELEASE: Tropical Storm Harvey Afternoon Update 8/29/2017

Post Date:08/29/2017 3:41 PM

We have confirmed that Lafourche Parish Schools, Nicholls State University, 17th Judicial Court, Clerk of Court and the District Attorney's Office will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, August 30th, 2017.

As we continue to experience the effects of Tropical Storm Harvey, Lafourche Parish Field Office locations will remain open with personnel to assist residents in need of sandbags.

We encourage self-fill by residents due to the high volume of requests at this time in order to reduce waiting periods. However, we will assist and will continue to fill sandbags continuously at each location until all resident needs are met.

We have received reports of significant street flooding with road closures and homes taking in water. Pumps are running throughout the Parish continuously to drain areas as soon as possible. We continue to monitor rain totals and address drainage issues to ensure water flow.

Please contact us to share information or to request assistance. Our Office of Emergency Preparedness and key personnel will remain on call through the duration of the weather event.
