Tropical storm Barry

Hurricane Hunter Aircraft have determined the system has strengthened to Tropical Storm Barry.

The forecast track has shifted to the east since yesterday, but the error cone still covers Jefferson Davis Parish.

The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is forecasting winds of up to 74 mph for Jefferson Davis Parish beginning as early as Friday morning around 8am and continuing until Saturday night.  They are also forecasting 2-4 inches of rain between today and Sunday with a majority of that rain coming between Friday night and Sunday morning.

Prior to the wind entering our area, please secure your property and remove any dead limbs or trees to prevent them from falling on any structures or power lines.  Please secure all loose objects outside to prevent fling debris from causing any additional damage.  Secure items such as garbage cans, lawn furniture and BBQ Pits.  Please be sure to take care of any pets or livestock that may be affected by high winds.
