7pm update from the NWS still shows the track coming for Acadiana! Make your final preparations and be safe. Our team is finalizing our plans and procedures for operations during the storm so we are ready.

At 700 PM, the center of Hurricane Delta was located by an Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 22.3 North,
longitude 90.2 West. Delta is moving toward the northwest near 17
mph. A northwestward motion with a reduction in forward
speed is expected through early Thursday. A north-northwestward
motion is expected by late Thursday, and a faster northward to
north-northeastward motion is forecast on Friday and Friday night.
On the forecast track, the center of Delta will move over the
southern and central Gulf of Mexico through Thursday, and approach the northern Gulf coast within the hurricane watch area on Friday. Delta is forecast to move inland within the hurricane watch area by late Friday or Friday night.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 90 mph
with higher gusts. Further strengthening is forecast while the
hurricane moves over the southern and central Gulf of Mexico through Thursday, and Delta is expected to become a major hurricane again. Some weakening is forecast as Delta approaches the northern Gulf coast on Friday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles. During the past few hours, a Mexican weather
station on Isla Perez, off the north coast of the Yucatan
Peninsula, measure.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 973 mb (28.73 inches).

Incredible job tonight, Broussard PD! Thank you for keeping traffic flowing and organized after the fireworks show. You guys did a great job!
Huge shout out to Sgt. Daigle in assisting my family and I today at Albertson's. Thank you for your promptness, eagerness and compassion. Huge shout out to the Dispatcher and non emergency line operator, ya'll are awesome!! My family backs the blue, and we will always have Broussard Police Department six!! Thank you for your amazing officers.
Speeders on deer meadow I sit outside and watch traffic and pray no one gets hit buy a speeding vehicle it will take someone getting killed are seriously hurt to slow people down
Can the Broussard Police do anything about the number of people entering Walmart and Home Depot? Can store managers be forced to limit the number of people entering the store at one time? Academy of Ls Avenue limits the number of people entering the store to 25 at a time.
Hello, is there also a Brossard, Quebec Police Department? OR Bienville?? Fraud was perpetrated against me by Bruce Cohen, address; 107a 6250 Ave Bienville, Brossard Quebec. This is the information given to seller of goods charged to my credit card. The Parcel is at Canada Post office (which location I do not know) ready for pick up or delivery Monday, I am hoping to stop and reverse delivery back to seller who in turn will credit my credit card. AND file charges against this person. Thank you anyone for your assistance, time and efforts.
LOST: Black and white female terrier mix, about 25-30 pounds, 13 years old, Answers to Beth. Went missing today in the Broussard area, near South Morgan and Albertson Parkway.
Had problems installing my grand baby’s car seat in vehicle the correct way. Called BPD and Officer Daigle came to correct the problem and install it properly. Thank y’all so much.
My own personal opinion of the Broussard Police Dept. They are professional, pleasant to deal with, no buddy system, honest, easy to talk to, understandable, respectable, handles their job, returns calls, explains everything into details for you to understand why or what is going on, addresses issues & concerns and was available to speak to instantly like there is an open door policy. I truly cannot say enough good things of my experience with the Broussard Police Dept..
Saw Broussard Police in Albertson's parking lot today. If you were checking for people parking in Handy Cap parking spaces and ticketing them. I want to say Well Done! I see so many parking in handy cap spaces that are not handy cap, it is so aggravating to see people that really need to be close to store and they can't because of lazy people.
Love you all for your commitment to your community . Great job. Always praying for your safety.
You guys rock, stay safe. 💙
You guys are rocking it.🗡️💙
