GOHSEP Urges Everyone to Prepare for Severe Weather

BATON ROUGE (January 21, 2016) – The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) is urging everyone to be aware of severe storms expected to impact the state as a cold front moves across the region. Monitor the National Weather Service (NWS) and your local media outlets for advisories in your area. The threat will last in some areas through midnight.
According to the NWS, the main threats associated with this system include:
• Wind gusts up to 65 mph
• Isolated thunderstorms
• Large hail
In addition to the severe weather threat, rainfall of 1 to 2 inches will be possible. Locally heavy rainfall could lead to localized ponding of water in low lying areas and areas of poor drainage.
“High water is already an issue in many parts of the state due to recent river flooding and the unusually wet winter that we have had to date,” said GOHSEP Director James Waskom. “Storms such as the one impacting the state today could intensify those current issues or create new problems. Get a game plan before the storms strike. Use caution and allow more time if you have to travel. Stay alert in case weather conditions become dangerous.”

Some protective actions you can take before a thunderstorms include:
•Postpone outdoor activities.
•Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
•Get inside a home, building, or hard top automobile. Although you may be injured if lightning strikes your car, you are much safer inside a vehicle than outside.
•Remember, rubber-soled shoes and rubber tires provide NO protection from lightning. However, the steel frame of a hard-topped vehicle provides increased protection if you are not touching metal.
•Shutter windows and secure outside doors. If shutters are not available, close window blinds, shades or curtains.

Interesting read and worth remembering for 2016 hurricane preparedness.

Iberia Parish – FYI from the Weather Service:

The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is expecting a strong cold front to move through the region late Saturday night through Sunday. Strong to severe storms will be possible, with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. One to three inches of rain is expected. Due to the strong southerly winds, minor coastal flooding could occur during high tide on Saturday and Sunday.

GREAT CLASS IN JEANERETTE LAST NIGHT,

03/04/2015

The National Weather Service is expecting a warm muggy day today, with a few showers developing this afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 70s, with a few spots probably topping 80 degrees. A cold front will be approaching our region from the north, reaching a Woodville to Alexandria line by 6 pm this evening. This front will reach the coast by 6 am Thursday, ushering in much colder temperatures on Thursday. Lingering rain behind the front could become frozen in parts of east Texas and central Louisiana, mainly between 6 am and noon Thursday. Total ice accumulations should be less than 0.05 inch. This is still enough to cause slick spots on elevated roads and bridges in these regions. The I-10 corridor of southeast Texas and southwest and south central Louisiana is not expected to see any frozen precipitation.

A hard freeze is forecast for late Thursday night into Friday morning, with lows in the low to mid 20s north of the I-10 corridor.

For marine interests, winds from the north will be quite gusty at 30 to 35 knots on Thursday. This will enable the Sabine-Neches and Calcasieu shipping channels to experience low water problems, especially during periods of low tides.

GREAT CLASS IN JEANERETTE TONIGHT, WE STILL OPEN SPOTS FOR NEXT THURSDAY CALL AT THE FIRE STATION IN JEANERETTE.
