LABEOC Members:

As of 6:00 am, Thursday, 11 July, the State EOC and Louisiana Business EOC are activated in support of Tropical Storm Barry response and recovery. The BEOC will operate from 7:00am - 7:00pm each day. The current track of the storm is predicted to affect the Lafayette community where the LABEOC is based, but we are also running operations in Baton Rouge. If we lose connectivity for our Lafayette operations the fall back phone number in Baton Rouge is 225-925-7450.

As of 4:45 pm, the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting land fall to occur early Saturday morning in the Morgan City/Terrebonne area as a Cat 1 hurricane and diminish as it moves inland. The biggest threat posed by this storm is the accompanying heavy rains (up to 15 inches) and flooding. Tropical impacts could be felt as early as tonight. As the storm is still slowly developing, it is difficult to accurately project the exact land fall and intensity. The NWS is confident in the heavy rain prediction.

The LABEOC and South Louisiana Economic Council (Regional) are publishing frequent updates on our social media pages - Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. These pages will contain the most current information.

We are providing the links below to help your planning/response/recovery efforts:

Real-time Road Conditions

LA Fuel Status

Parish OEP contacts


Airbnb has activated its Open Homes host community to provide no cost to evacuees and responders.

We'll look to publish daily SITREPS as the response and recovery happen but our social media pages will have the most current information throughout. Stay safe and avoid complacency - the 2016 floods were an unnamed storm.
