From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard - Mosquito District Aerial Operations Wednesday 9/20 and Friday 9/22 evenings

The Iberia Mosquito Abatement District will conduct aerial operations Wednesday (9/20) and Friday (9/22) evenings to address floodwater species mosquitoes. Surveillance has detected a marked increase in numbers leading to troublesome nuisance biting for residents and pastoral animals. Weather permitting aerial operations will begin near sunset each evening and last no more than one (1.5) and one half hours. Wednesday (9/20) evening a limited portion of Coteau Holmes area and Friday (9/22) a more expansive area of Coteau Holmes Lake Dauterive area.

Wednesday (9/20) Coteau Holmes / Mestayer, specifically, Gondron, Boutte Rd., Harold Landry, Lake Dauterive Rd., Blue Ln. and all points in between.

Friday (9/22) Coteau Holmes / Daspit, specifically, just east of Cemetery Rd. west to Braquet Rd., just south of Walet / Gondron Rd. to Lake Dauterive Rd. and all points in between.

During this period, only hypersensitive individuals or persons that wish to avoid all exposure to chemicals in the designated spray area should refrain from outdoor activities; otherwise, all other citizens can proceed with normal outdoor activities!

Citizens will notice low flying aircraft --- If the aircraft is overhead DO NOT attempt to follow the path of the aircraft. The aircraft is traveling quickly and will be out of the area in a brief period!

From the National Weather Service August 31, 2023:

Dry conditions will again promote critical fire weather concerns today, as relative humidities fall to between 20 and 25 percent across the area. Individuals should continue to heed burn bans and avoid activities that could produce sparks or open flames.

Dry weather will continue into Friday, with rain chances increasing again over the weekend and into early next week.

From the National Weather Service:

Much drier air will filter into the region today, with northerly winds 10 to 15 mph and gusts as high as 25 mph at times.

These conditions will combine to produce critical fire weather conditions today, with the potential for rapid wildfire development and spread.

Burn bans remain in effect across the area and individuals are urged to avoid activities that produce open flames or sparks.

From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard - National Weather Service Issues Red Flag Warning and Tropical Weather Outlook

From the National Weather Service:

A Red Flag Warning remains in effect today as the risk for the rapid initiation and spread of wildfires continues. Excessive Heat Warnings/Heat advisories are also up once again today. For those who have been asking when this "heat dome" will finally break down or move, I finally have an answer for you. A pattern change is finally beginning to materialize as the high pressure responsible for some of the hottest temperatures on record will finally push back to the west allowing for increasing thunderstorms and even a technical "cold" front which will drop our afternoon highs into the mid to upper 90s as opposed to the 103-110 we've been seeing.

That's the good news. The bad news is that the increasing thunderstorm activity will also further increase the wildfire potential as will the higher northerly winds and drier air expected to move in behind the boundary Tuesday and Wednesday.

We're also monitoring an area of disturbed weather moving into the western Caribbean that has a high probability of developing into a tropical cyclone as it moves into the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. At present, the only impacts to our area look to be breezy northerly winds (not good news for the ongoing fire threat) and elevated swells offshore.

Gov. Edwards Issues Executive Order Suspending All Prescribed Burns

BATON ROUGE, La. – Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards signed an executive order suspending all prescribed burns in Louisiana including those used for forest, agricultural and coastal land management as the state continues to battle hundreds of fires throughout Louisiana due to the extreme drought. The executive order is effective immediately and is in addition to the current burn ban. Everyone should note there is no exception to the burn ban for any reason. It remains in place until further notice. As of August 24, there have been more than 440 fires that have either damaged or destroyed more than 30,000 acres of land including the wildfires in Beauregard Parish.

“Right now our state is facing a very dangerous and unpredictable situation with lots of fires burning statewide, and we cannot afford to have any exceptions to the current burn ban,” said Gov. Edwards. “Under normal conditions, prescribed burning is intended to be used as a land management tool, but these are not normal conditions and they are compounding the existing threat of wildfires due to the severe heat and drought we’re experiencing. Embers from a fire that has been put out can be blown miles away and flare up again in another area, which is why we need everyone focused on efforts to prevent more fires. They will tax the same firefighters and emergency responders who are working hard to extinguish the blazes that are currently threatening lives and property. While we don’t know how long we will be in this situation, we do know that by adhering to the burn ban we can lessen the chances of any other fires from starting.”

The State Fire Marshal and Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry issued a statewide burn ban on August 7 due to the extreme heat and dry conditions. Gov. Edwards declared a statewide emergency on August 11.

From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard - No threat of tropical weather but winds create fire hazard conditions

Iberia Parish – There is no tropical weather threat to us from tropical wave 91L in the Gulf of Mexico, but associated winds will contribute to our high fire hazard conditions.

Please see the Governor’s press release below discussing our current statewide burn ban.

BATON ROUGE, La. – Gov. John Bel Edwards strongly encourages everyone to adhere to the current statewide burn ban as the drought and extreme heat conditions continue to plague Louisiana. Earlier this week, Gov. Edwards declared a state of emergency due to the extremely high temperatures. The Louisiana State Fire Marshal and the Louisiana Department of Agriculture (LDAF) also recently issued a statewide burn ban. As of August 17, there have been more than 260 wildfires that have either damaged or destroyed thousands of acres of land and property.

“Everyone should take these dangerously high temperatures seriously. The extreme heat has already caused a high number of deaths and sent even more people to the hospital. In addition, our state is experiencing very dry weather, which coupled with the heat has produced a number of wildfires. So far, there has not been a loss of life because of the fires, but they have damaged and destroyed more than 3,500 acres of land and property. That is exactly why the burn ban is in place. I want to thank State Fire Marshal Dan Wallis and State Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain for the work they are doing to keep us safe, but we need everyone in communities statewide to pitch in and help. It is necessary for all of us to do our part to prevent any further problems from occurring. Please stay cool and hydrated. Also, follow the burn ban, and encourage your family, friends and neighbors to do the same.”

Violation of the burn ban could result in criminal and/or civil penalties.

"Firefighters from around the state are being worn thin as a result of responding to several illegal burn piles and brush fires, which are more frequently turning into larger wildfires because of the dangerous conditions," said Chief Wallis, "We are pleading with the public to cooperate with this burn ban and be considerate of the first responders who are put in increased danger in this heat every time they're called to respond to a fire."

“As a reminder, the statewide burn ban is still in effect due to dangerously dry and hot conditions,” said Commissioner Mike Strain DVM. “This order has been in effect since 5:00 pm on August 7, and it will remain in effect until rescinded. A burn ban means no outdoor burning of any kind. If you have any questions pertaining to what constitutes an outdoor fire, check with your local fire department.”

Private burning is only allowed if individuals receive permission from their local fire department or local government. Officials discourage the use of barbecue grills, fire pits, and small campfires for brief, recreational cooking purposes at this time. However, they are allowed and not affected by the burn ban.

LDAF’s Office of Forestry is tasked with responding to wildfires. In the event of an emergency, call 911 or the LDAF 24-Hour Emergency Hotline at 1-855-452-5323.

From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard – update from NWS

From the National Weather Service in Lake Charles:

This system in the gulf, regardless of formation, will pose a threat to us that is not common in this area. We will not be expecting the hydrological threats we are used to seeing. In fact, over the next seven days, we are expecting anywhere between no rain and half an inch at most! The threat that it poses will come from the winds. We are in a drought as we have been for months now and we have seen wildfires break out across the area. Sustained winds of up to 20MPH with gusts of up to 30MPH along with low RH minimums of around 25-30% creates the potential for fire danger.

(As a reminder, the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry announced a statewide burn ban for the State of Louisiana last week and this burn ban remains in effect.)

From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard - Mosquito Aerial Operations Friday, August 18

Despite the extreme heat the risk of West Nile virus and encephalitis transmission from a mosquito bite is in play. LSU School of Veterinary Medicine Louisiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (LADDL), has reported West Nile Virus activity in mosquito samples submitted for testing by the Iberia Parish Mosquito Control District. The Iberia Parish Mosquito Control District will conduct aerial operations Wednesday (8/16) and Friday (8/18) evenings to address identified mosquito populations. Citizens must take personal protective measures to avoid mosquito bites to reduce the risks of West Nile virus, St. Louis Encephalitis, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and other mosquito - borne pathogens as the District engages operations. It is imperative that citizens follow these simple guidelines recommended by the CDC. Wear repellent as the label directs, avoid activity at Dawn & Dusk, wear light colored clothing to cover exposed skin and eliminate mosquito breeding sites near the home!

Aerial operations will begin near sunset each evening and last no more than one (1.0) hour. Operations this evening (8/16) will focus in the City of Jeanerette and Friday (8/18) evening operations will focus in North Freyou vicinity.

Tonight (8/16) Jeanerette, specifically, north to south E. Adm. Doyle to Linden Plantation Rd., east to west St. Peters Rd. to N. Hubertville Rd. and all points in between.

Friday (8/18) N. Freyou, specifically, north to south. E. Adm. Doyle to Hwy. 90, east to west Darnell Rd. to Blanchard Rd. and all points in between.

During this period, only hypersensitive individuals or persons that wish to avoid all exposure to chemicals in the designated spray area should refrain from outdoor activities; otherwise, all other citizens can proceed with normal outdoor activities!

Citizens will notice low flying aircraft --- If the aircraft is overhead DO NOT attempt to follow the path of the aircraft. The aircraft is traveling quickly and will be out of the area in a brief period!

If you have any questions or mosquito related problems feel free to contact our office at (337) 365-4933. Please visit us on the web www.iberiaparishgovernment.com and click on “Mosquito Control”.

From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard - Coteau Water experiencing low storage levels

Water Works #3: Coteau water has been experiencing low storage levels in our water supply tanks due to increased consumption amid this drought and heatwave. We are trying to build storage in our tanks without issuing overnight outages. We believe we can achieve this with our new control panel by adjusting outgoing flow intermittently. You may experience low water pressure from time to time in the next few days.

We need your help to conserve water in every way possible and be mindful of usage moving forward. Please help by not watering lawns, washing cars, etc. We will update you of any changes.

We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact Iberia Parish Waterworks District No. 3 (Coteau) at (337)367-6111.

07/26/2023

From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard - Hwy 90 construction will affect hurricane evacuation in Iberia Parish: Please be aware of possible road detours and closures

Construction on U.S. Highway 90 in Iberia Parish will affect any hurricane evacuations in coastal Louisiana this summer and for several years to come. Because of this, residents and businesses should consider completing hurricane preparations or evacuations earlier than normal in the event of a major storm forecast to strike the Gulf of Mexico coast between Mississippi and Iberia Parish.

• Any mandatory evacuation between Mississippi and Iberia Parish will generate heavy Westbound evacuation traffic here on US Highway 90 through the construction zone.

• In order to reduce evacuation delays LA DOTD will establish an evacuation detour route past the construction zone using Weeks Island Road for additional Westbound traffic capacity. This LA DOTD detour may close cross traffic on Jefferson Terrace Blvd., South Lewis St. and Center St. where they intersect with Weeks Island Rd. Depending on traffic conditions, LA DOTD may also close Darnall Rd. and Patoutville Rd. where they cross under US Hwy 90.

• Iberia Parish residents may not be able to reach locations such as Lowe’s along this detour when the detour is active and it may be difficult or impossible to cross US Hwy 90 in Iberia Parish.

• We are experiencing serious, difficult to clear accidents in this construction zone which completely block Westbound US Hwy 90. Such an accident during an evacuation would result in extreme backups on US Hwy 90 and heavy traffic using Iberia Parish roads as an alternative, making movement around Iberia Parish difficult.

• Fill your vehicles up early and keep them topped off. As in 2005 before Hurricane Katrina, fuel will be in short supply here during any evacuation using US Hwy 90.

• We could experience these effects even if the Hurricane itself does not affect Iberia Parish.

• If you are evacuating during heavier traffic, please plan your route early and consider these traffic issues. Give yourself extra time to evacuate due to these expected traffic delays.

• Please sign up for notifications from the Iberia Parish Information Notification System (Iberia PINS) using the QR code below. You can also find the QR Code on the Iberia Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness/911 page, or use the signup link on the Iberia Parish Government website. Iberia PINS is our best way to update you on developments affecting evacuations.

From Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard - Hazardous Weather Message from the National Weather Service Lake Charles

Hazardous Weather Message

New…Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Thursday Afternoon/Evening…

… Slight Risk of Excessive Rainfall Wednesday & Thursday…

SUMMARY, IMPACTS & NEW ADDITIONS:
• An extended period of showers and thunderstorms will begin Wednesday morning as precipitation spreads into lower southeast Texas. Rain will increase in coverage throughout the day before continuing into Thursday when a low pressure center crosses south Louisiana as a congealed mass of heavy showers and some organized thunderstorms.

• Due to saturated conditions, lower rainfall totals may still lead to minor flooding of urban and poor drainage areas, as well as cause creeks and bayous to overtop their banks.

• Some thunderstorms may become strong to severe Thursday afternoon and early evening, particularly in south-central Louisiana parishes. Damaging wind gusts and a brief, isolated tornado will be possible in stronger storms or line segments that may develop.

Wednesday:
Excessive Rainfall: Up to 1 inch of rainfall with some locally higher amounts. Primarily in northern Texas counties where there is a Slight Risk (2 out of 4) of excessive rainfall.

Thursday:
Excessive Rainfall: The Slight Risk (2 out of 4) then expands to include most Louisiana parishes as another 1 to 2 inches of rainfall are possible with some locally higher amounts. Stronger storms may have rain rates of 1+inch per hour.

Severe Weather: Portions of lower Acadiana have been included in a Marginal Risk (1 out of 5) of severe weather Thursday afternoon and evening. As low pressure tracks along the coastline, strong to severe thunderstorms may be possible over south central Louisiana. Right now, damaging wind gusts are the primary concern but a brief isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

CONFIDENCE: Confidence remains the same for excessive rainfall potential. Marginal confidence in severe weather.

Next Update: Wednesday Morning.

Join Fenstermaker Construction Inspector, Scott Courville, for a new episode of "In the Field" from the Acadiana Regional Airport Access Road Project. In this edition, Scott gives us a close-up view of the first concrete pours for the roundabout pavement. Ever wonder why tiny grooves are added to roadway pavement? Stay tuned until the end of the video for an intriguing explanation!

Fenstermaker is proud to have provided the engineering design for this groundbreaking roadway project. We're excited to continue our work in construction administration throughout its construction process, overseeing the project toward a successful completion.
