We are gearing up for a major weather event in Louisiana, and I would like to think that most of us are ready. But in case you need help with emergency services, we are letting you know that help is available in Louisiana.

  • Road Closure information. 511LA.org, call 511 or 888-762-3511. Everything from incidents, construction, weather related shut downs, and even ferry information

  • Shelter information for each parish
  • State Office closure information
