Update In Regards To Tropical Storm Cindy: Cindy has made landfall near Holly Beach. Winds are down to 40 mph and that is mostly over the Gulf. So wind shouldn't be a huge issue in Central Louisiana but I wouldn't take the boat out today. There is a flood watch until this evening and a wind advisory. Because rain has been tame here so far, it looks like 2-4 inch storm totals will cover most areas, but isolated flooding remains a possibility as moisture levels remain off the charts high, and Cindy will continue to pinwheel rain bands our way. In fact, elevated rain chances will linger through at least Saturday. The most significant threat is isolated tornadoes when it comes to public safety and the sun popping out between rain bands will only serve to heighten that threat. These will generally be brief and tough to warn because they are moving quickly and spin up very fast. Sometimes the radar misses them altogether as they happen between the several minutes a radar takes to fully update between sweeps. So if it's raining really hard or dark and scary, go ahead and duck inside for a bit. There is a tornado watch until 1:00 PM for all areas in Central Louisiana. We hope everyone will use caution if you have to be outdoors today! GOD Bless You!

The Hessmer Police Department is anticipating the landfall of Tropical Storm Cindy within the next 24 hours. The National Weather Service expects our area will not experience the worst effects of the storm. The NWS forecasts is predicting 2-3 inches of rain along with winds reaching up to 50 mph The Village of Hessmer has sand bags located at the Ronald Mayeaux Baseball Field if anyone is in need. You must fill your own bags. We encourage everyone to prepare for the possibility of bad weather as early as possible. Rain is expected to begin in the early afternoon hours increasing in severity by the night hours. Please try to take care of any and all business or errands before the rain hits so you can avoid being on the roads.
