From Parish President M. Larry Richard - Update on Severe Weather from National Weather Service -  3/29/2022

For more information contact: Prescott Marshall

Windy conditions will be increasing tonight into Wednesday thanks to a tightening pressure gradient. Expect some tree limbs to blow down and isolated to scattered power outages, especially along and south of the I-10 corridor of Louisiana.

A line of strong to severe thunderstorms will move across our region on Wednesday.

Some places in central and south central Louisiana could see hurricane force (over 74 mph) wind gusts. A strong tornado (EF-2 or more) is possible in parts of central and south central Louisiana.

For marine interests, expect gale criteria to be met for at least the gusts, over 35 knots tonight into Wednesday. In addition, due to the strong onshore flow, expect to see some minor coastal flooding during high tide overnight into Wednesday morning.
