St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper is asking all residents to prepare for the possibility of a localized heavy rain event, tropical storm force winds, storm surge, and assure that all family members are accounted for and have a safe place to shelter from any potential foul weather. We ask that you clear storm drains, follow your family plan for a storm event, and pay close attention to weather forecasts and Parish officials as the storm moves across the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, we ask that you enhance your emergency preparedness plan to include masks, hand sanitizers and to continue to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
