Recovery, restoration status given by Police Jury

Assessments are still underway. In some cases, it is very difficult to determine damages that were caused by Laura or Delta.

Points of Distribution locations are Johnson Bayou Fire Department, Grand Lake High School, and Hackett’s Corner (LA Hwy 27 & 384). Operational hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Water, Ice, MREs and tarps are available. Most locations also have additional donated goods that residents can pick up.

Preliminary reports from the National Weather Service Lake Charles are showing that the highest sustained winds in Cameron Parish were 89 mph at the Lacassine gauge and 8.32″ of rain at the same location. They will be issuing a more detailed in-depth report later that will hopefully have data closer to the coast.

Most of the Parish is still without electricity and the majority of running water is being powered by generators. Boil advisories are in effect.

The Parish is still under a Mandatory Evacuation and a curfew is in place between the hours of 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Everyone is asked to stay apprised of the situation as curfews and evacuations status can change as communities become self-sufficient with goods and services and fully operational utilities.
