Because of forecasted heavy rainfall from Tropical Storm Harvey, Iberia Parish President M. Larry Richard has expanded the voluntary evacuation to include all of Iberia Parish.

"The National Weather Service has forecast flooding rains which could impede evacuation from this area as Tropical Storm Harvey affects our region," says President Richard. "Elderly residents and residents with special medical or mobility requirements should especially consider evacuating until the risk to Iberia Parish from Tropical Storm Harvey has passed."
If Iberia Parish Government declares a mandatory evacuation because the dangerous weather worsens, government officials will provide evacuation assistance and open a shelter for residents in need of a place to stay.
