Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard Weather Alert from NWS-12:00noon -  8/28/2017

For more information contact: Prescott Marshall

The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is monitoring Tropical Storm Harvey as it moves off the central Texas coast today, and meanders off the coast before making landfall on the upper Texas coast on Wednesday morning. Due to this system coming closer to our region, a tropical storm warning is in effect for Jefferson County and western Cameron Parish, while a tropical storm watch is in effect for eastern Cameron Parish and Vermilion Parish. Wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph near the coast is expected in the watch and warning area during the strongest thunderstorms.

Storm surge will be 1 to 3 feet above ground level during high tides today and tomorrow especially around Delcambre and Cypremont Point.

Still, the biggest threat from Harvey is the rain and floods. We are expecting 5 to 10 inches in south central Louisiana.

There will be a threat for isolated tornadoes today, especially along and south of the I-10 corridor of southeast Texas and southwest and south central Louisiana.
