As Hurricane Ian approaches Florida, I have spoken with @GovRonDeSantis and offered Louisiana's resources, personnel and expertise. Significant @LANationalGuard resources are already on the way. We are also prepared to send additional help once damage assessment begins. #lagov— Gov. John Bel Edwards (@LouisianaGov) September 28, 2022
