GOHSEP's Crisis Action Team activated in wake of storms
BATON ROUGE - Governor John Bel Edwards urged extra caution to state residents after Tuesday’s strong storms and clean up begins.
The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness say they’re closely monitoring the conditions. GOHSEP’s Crisis Action Team has been activated to coordinate any requests that come for state support from local agencies.
The National Weather Service continues to update GOHSEP and other state agencies about changing conditions. Utility crews are on standby to begin power restoration as soon as conditions improve.
“The Louisiana State Police and other emergency responders ask everyone to stay off the road until conditions improve,” said Governor John Bel Edwards. “Safety is our number one concern during this type of event. The threat of severe weather will likely remain in some areas for several more hours. In other areas, crews are still responding to emergencies and removing debris. Make sure you monitor your local media and the National Weather Service for any additional emergency advisories.”
