FEMA will be granting Louisiana $3.6 million for hurricane preparedness in East Baton Rouge Parish. Part of that money will go towards the construction of a new hurricane community safe room and training shelter for first responders.
The National Hurricane Center gave Invest 92-L the special designation of Potential Tropical Cyclone #3. This special designation allows for the NHC to begin issuing regular advisories, forecast track cones, and watches and warnings.
Our primary focus in the days ahead will be an area of disturbed weather in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The NHC gives it an 80% chance of developing as of the 1 9.m. Tuesday outlook but the primary threat to the northern Gulf Coast appears to be heavy rainfall.
Along with widespread cleanup efforts after yet another hurricane in Louisiana, many groups are working to make sure families get the resources and supplies they need, especially front-line workers who have been displaced.
