St. Tammany Parish Implements Storm Protocols

St. Tammany Parish Implements Storm Protocols

Tropical Storm Nate is now located near the Gulf of Mexico. There still exists some uncertainty as far as the path of this system. The St. Tammany Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is receiving continual updates from the National Weather Service and is monitoring the track of this system. St. Tammany Parish has implemented its storm protocols. 
 
Based upon the forecast track, we will announce any emergency preparedness plans to the public as they happen through the local media, through social media on Facebook and Twitter, and, if necessary, through ALERT St. Tammany. Residents can also call 985-809-2300 for recorded updates. Sign up to receive automatic email updates from the Parish on our website, www.stpgov.org.
 
Parish President Pat Brister, and the administration of St. Tammany Parish Government, are  asking all residents to prepare for the possibility of a tropical event. We ask that you clear storm drains and drainage ditches, and if you see a potential problem call our Public Works Department at 985-898-2557. Follow your family plan for a storm event, and pay close attention to weather forecasts and Parish officials as the storm moves into the Gulf of Mexico.

St. Tammany Parish is poised to activate our Emergency Preparedness plans if necessary.
