CROWLEY, La - Acadia Parish has issued a voluntary evacuation for the entire parish.

Those who live in structures that cannot withstand tropical or hurricane-force winds, are encouraged to evacuate.

At this time, a local or state shelter is not open. Residents who choose to evacuate should seek shelter with family, friends, or at a hotel and prepare their homes accordingly. Whether residents evacuate or shelter in place, the Police Jury encourages everyone to have enough supplies on hand for 3-4 days. Those who evacuate can stay updated on crucial road information such as detours, closures, and delays by visiting the Louisiana DOTD website or 511LA.org [511la.org].
