GLPC Storm Watch: Update #7 (Voluntary Evacuation Rescinded)

June 22, 2017
9:00 a.m.

The Port Commission is rescinding Phase II: Voluntary Evacuation status for Tropical Storm Cindy and returning to Phase I: Storm Watch. We are remaining in Storm Watch phase to monitor water levels along roadways, as high tide today is around noon and water levels may continue to rise.

All roads are open to vehicular traffic, including LA 1 from Golden Meadow to Grand Isle, and crews are clearing any debris gathered along roadways from storm waters. Please use caution and watch for crews, equipment, and debris along your route.

Cindy has made landfall in southwest Louisiana, and the Tropical Storm Warning is no longer in effect. We are still under a Flash Flood Watch through this evening, especially in coastal areas. The storm’s associated Tornado Watch ends at 1:00 p.m. today.

The Lady of the Sea Medical Clinic – Fourchon is closed for business today.

Businesses and coastal residents should be alert for new updates and warnings and need to be prepared to take quick action if necessary. Please review your facility’s hurricane plan, be thoughtful of stockpiling any loose material or excess items that could fly away or be damaged if Port Fourchon is affected by a storm, and make sure the Port Commission has your facility’s updated contact information so that you can receive timely storm-related information.

If you have signed up to any of our public information or emergency notification lists, e-mails, and/or social media, messages will be sent daily with up-to-date information. If you would like to sign up for any notifications from the Port Commission, visit our NOTIFY ME page.
