Effective Wednesday (7/10/19) Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office requests that residents residing south of Highway 92 (southern Acadia Parish) in a low lying area begin a voluntary evacuation. If your property floods easily you need to consider evacuating between now and Friday. This time line could move up depending on the storms movement.
The Acadia parish Policy Jury President has signed a declaration for a State of Emergency this afternoon. Continue to check with News 15 for landfall updates.
If you are evacuating pack enough clothes, medicine and supplies for several days. Please make arrangements for your pets as well.
The Pontoon Bridge in Estherwood will be opened tomorrow at Noon until further notice.
