Lafourche-Terrebonne: Hurricane Nate preps
Thibodaux (Lafourche Parish):
Terrebonne Parish has cancelled its curfew order due to the forecasts from the National Hurricane Center and the National Weather Service in New Orleans.
Officials are urging residents to limit travel throughout the parish during nighttime hours due to the possibility of strong wind gusts. Residents are also being asked to avoid driving on flooded roadways.
A curfew has been imposed for the city of Thibodaux beginning at 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7 until 7 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 8.
Residents are strongly urged if at all possible to stay home and off the roadways.
Additionally, residents are also advised to pick up all loose items from their yards which may be blown around by the potentially high winds Nate may bring to the area. Please check all ditches and catch basins around your home to insure that our drainage infrastructure is able to handle any heavy rain this system generates.
Sandbags are available to all residents at our Public Works building located at 1219 Henry S. Thibodaux Street. Sandbags will be delivered to disabled residents upon request. Those requests can be made by calling 985-446-7223.
