Thursday was the first day of the 2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said, “It is the perfect time to get a game plan.”
Thursday the National Weather Service Shreveport office said, “Thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure over the Gulf of Mexico have become better organized this morning. Conditions are marginally favorable for further short term development but become unfavorable this weekend. No impacts to the Four State Region are expected.”
Edwards said, “Storms form quickly once they enter the Gulf and leave little time to prepare. Take time now to make sure you and your family have a plan in the event a storm heads our way.”
