Iberia Parish – This afternoon’s National Weather Service (NWS) forecast for a possible Category 1 hurricane landfalling on Friday in Texas is below. In addition to as much as 14 inches of rain here from Friday to Sunday, in a worst case scenario there is the potential for a hurricane surge here reaching as far inland as LA Hwy 14 and US Hwy 90 when the storm makes landfall. We will participate in two conference calls with the NWS tomorrow and will provide updates after each one.


The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is monitoring the remnants of Harvey. It is currently moving over the Yucatan Peninsula, and will move into the Bay of Campeche tonight. It will likely develop into a tropical depression on Wednesday, and strengthen potentially into a category one hurricane by landfall on Friday on the central Texas coast.

What this means for us locally is a heavy rain and storm threat predominantly, with wind and tornadoes being a lower end threat. Up to seven inches of rain is expected Friday through the weekend, with the potential for over 14 inches. This has the potential to be a dangerous flooding event. The storm surge will also come into play, with portions of Jefferson and Orange counties, as well as Cameron, Vermilion, Iberia, and St. Mary parishes under the risk Friday


We will hold a prayer chant for those families who lost their loved ones to bullying and for our children in the community on August 22 at 11:00am. Please stop by if you can. It will be held on the side of the City Hall building. Thank you.


Jeanerette Live will be held Nov. 4th. Artist line up will be announced soon.


Water flushing will take place tonight and tomorrow night at 9pm.


If you are experiencing no water or low water pressure, Public works are now working on a major water leak on a main water line. Please be patient while the problem is being fix.
