JEFFERSON PARISH MONITORS HURRICANE MICHAEL
According to the National Weather Service, Hurricane Michael is expected to move through the central and northern Gulf Tuesday through Wednesday. Ahead of any direct impacts from this storm, strengthening winds over the Gulf will lead to higher than normal tides along east and southeast facing shores of Southeast Louisiana and Mississippi. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for our area.
The greatest impacts are expected to remain east of the Jefferson Parish. We are closely monitoring the hurricane’s track and are prepared to take necessary action should the storm pose any threat to the parish, all Jefferson Parish social media sites will also be updated as necessary.
