MAYOR CANTRELL DECLARES A STATE OF

EMERGENCY DUE TO EXTREME WEATHER

NEW ORLEANS – Mayor LaToya Cantrell today issued a proclamation declaring a state of emergency due to Tropical Invest 92L.

 

Read the proclamation by clicking on this link.

 

“Because of intense thunderstorms, and the further potential for tropical or hurricane force winds and further thunderstorms, New Orleans may experience more widespread localized severe flooding and gale force winds that could result in the endangerment and threat of life, injury and possible property damage,” Mayor Cantrell said. “I am declaring a state of emergency in the City of New Orleans, warranting the use of all extraordinary measures appropriate to ensure the public health, safety, welfare, and convenience.”

 

The National Weather Service has indicated that Tropical Storm/Hurricane Barry will form in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of Tropical Invest 92L, and will likely produce heavy rainfall, flash flooding, coastal and river flooding, strong winds and the possibility of tornadoes, expected to arrive Thursday, July 11.

Companies also restore power caused by Wednesday’s severe weather

NEW ORLEANS – Entergy crews are working throughout the day Wednesday as a line of severe weather caused power outages across southeast Louisiana. Crews are expected to work into the evening safely restoring power to customers affected by the winds, lightning, heavy rain and flooding associated with Wednesday’s weather event.

In addition, company officials and crews continue to monitor the disturbance located off the coast of Florida as it moves toward the central Gulf of Mexico. Though the storm is currently poorly organized, Entergy is prepared for the possibility that this weather system could bring severe thunderstorms, strong winds, heavy rains, higher tides and coastal flooding to the state.

While the system’s strength upon landfall and exact path remains uncertain, Entergy Louisiana and Entergy New Orleans are preparing for the storm’s impact and the potential for power outages. The companies’ distribution and transmission crews and contractors are on alert and ready to safely restore power to customers as quickly as possible.

“We are urging our customers to monitor the storm’s path, follow the direction of local authorities and be ready to implement their own storm plans if needed,” said Melonie Stewart, Entergy’s vice president of distribution operations for Louisiana. “If you need help, the Entergy Storm Center has preparation tips and safety information that can assist in planning and making necessary decisions.”

Stay prepared and informed

Entergy keeps customers informed about restoring power in several ways:

  • A free app is available for iPhone or Android at entergyapp.com. Customers can use the app to report outages or check on the status of power at their homes or businesses.
  • Entergy’s View Outages website includes maps that show where outages are located and give information about restoration progress.
  • Customers can send and receive text messages about storm and restoration efforts. Signing up is easy: simply text REG to 368374.
  • The Entergy Storm Center website has storm safety, preparation, restoration and other information that is regularly updated.
  • Operation: Storm Ready is a free downloadable guide that helps customers plan and prepare for weather emergencies.

Customers are encouraged to follow us on social media on Twitter at @EntergyLA and @EntergyNOLA and on Facebook at facebook.com/EntergyLA and facebook.com/EntergyNOLA. We place a high priority on keeping our social media sites updated throughout any major events.

Background:

The New Links process (formally called the Comprehensive Operations Analysis) could recommend changes in where bus lines go in order to more reliably get people to jobs, school, the doctor’s office, and many other places. It might ask riders to consider tradeoffs like walking two blocks further or making an extra transfer in order to reduce overall travel time. It could even recommend real regional transit routes with convenient connections across parish lines.

New Links will unfold in three phases.
  • A first phase through the end of July introducing the project and gathering community input
  • A second phase this fall asking the community to weigh in on more specific transit network scenarios
  • A third phase in 2020 where a final proposal is released and the RTA and Jefferson Transit determine whether to adopt it.
The July meetings are the final part of the first phase. During these meetings, New Links planners will explain the New Links process, engage riders in discussion about their most important destinations, and ask riders for their input on tradeoffs like walking two blocks further or making an extra transfer in order to reduce overall travel time and increase the number of frequent buses.
