St. Tammany Parish Government Emergency Operations Update, Saturday, October 10, 2020: Hurricane Delta
St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced the St. Tammany Parish Government Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness is continually assessing impacts from Hurricane Delta and preparing for deactivation of the Emergency Operations Center when the all-clear is given by the National Weather Service.
“We are grateful that we were spared major damage to life and property from Hurricane Delta. We have crews working on a handful of problem areas, and we know some of our citizens experienced power outages, but overall our impacts are manageable,” said Cooper. “I ask everyone to join me in praying for our neighbors to the west of us, as they deal with impacts from a direct hit. This season has been active and we still have a few weeks left. I encourage everyone to stay prepared.”
- Public Works crews continue to assess damage and respond to obstructed roadways as need. All road closures are posted and updated at www.stpgov.org/storm .

until then as crews are working to clear debris.
