TORNADO WATCH NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 9PM
If you're in the highlighted counties, make sure you have a way to receive weather warnings and have a plan in place in case you go under a warning.

In addition to a few intense tornadoes (EF-2 or stronger), 70 mph wind gusts and golf ball size hail are possible.

The watch runs until 9PM because it includes many counties in southern Louisiana, too. Our severe weather threat will end once the front clears the coast, which should happen by around 7PM.

While enjoying the beauty of fireworks, it's crucial to remember our furry friends!

Remember that pets should never be allowed to inhale or ingest fireworks. Not only is there a risk of severe burns, but the chemicals and heavy metals used in fireworks can cause them to become sick or even lead to death.

CHARGE INTO FIRE SAFETY πŸ”‹πŸ”₯

Lithium-ion batteries are increasingly found in devices and systems that the public and first responders use or interact with daily. While these batteries provide an effective and efficient power source, the likelihood of them overheating, catching on fire, and even leading to explosions increases when damaged or improperly used, charged, or stored.

Visit www.nfpa.org for resources that provide information to promote safer use of lithium-ion batteries across a wide range of applications.
