Irene reminds us to get prepared
But the future is yet to come and, undoubtedly, will produce other threats regardless of how they are spelt. This week, there is another K storm in the Atlantic but Katia is not expected to come our way. There is, however, another group of winds in the Caribbean that could head northwest into the Gulf and develop into who knows what.
And therein is the rub, Never trust the weather whenever it is unsettled and could come our way.
Now is the time of the season when storm threats get more threatening and it is the time to take them even more seriously.
Everyone living along the Louisiana coast knows the do’s and dont’s of preparation. It’s time to put them into play if we have not done so already.
Bring out the list and do the ABCs of advance hurricane preparation. It’s already September and October is only a month away.
If Irene had struck Louisiana, it could have caused much more damage and loss of life along our fragile coast. But we can avoid much of that threat by being prepared.

$500 Bunge gift cards on hold until construction date set - 599 views
In order to ease the concerns of residents who live near Bunge North America in Destrehan, the grain elevator promised $500 gift cards to 100 residents if the St. Charles Parish Council approved a zoning change that would pave the way for a $50 million construction project. The council gave Bunge the OK in October, but the gift cards have yet to materialize.
