Tropical Storm Barry: How to Prepare

The Louisiana coast is under a severe weather warning. Our first priority at United Way of Southeast Louisiana is the safety of our staff and their families, and the families that make up our community.

As we monitor Tropical Storm Barry and anticipate its landfall as a Category 1 hurricane on Saturday, it can lead to a lot of anxiety, and concerns about, “what if?”

You may have a lot of questions right now: Who can I call on for support? Where can I get accurate information? Even, what should I do to prepare?
