Schools have been closed, roads have been closed, sandbags have been filled and plans have been changed by many people in South Louisiana. The reason for all this disruption? Heavy rain that just won't seem to go away.
We are no strangers to water on the roadway here in Acadiana. With many parts of the region receiving over 3 inches of rain already it's probably time to review the common sense practices of wet weather driving.
Winter in Louisiana is not a snow white wonderland. It is more like a squishy brown mess of dead grass, leaves and mud. It looks like we'll be getting more of the mud over the next few days as another storm system is expected to dump from 3-6 inches of rainfall on the area between midday Tuesday and early Thursday morning.
As of 4:30 this morning The University of Louisiana at Lafayette remains open and classes for Wednesday should go on as scheduled. We are in constant contact with the University Administration and any information on closing will be broadcast on 97.3 The Dawg and transmitted via this website and our Facebook Page.
Here in Louisiana when we think of the Earth moving we usually get visions of marsh land trembling underneath our boots but what about an earthquake? The fact is we do have earthquakes in Louisiana. There was a 3.8 magnitude earthquake in 1983 that was centered near Lake Charles. There was also a stronger quake that affected our state in 1930. So what are the chances of "the big one" hitting in Louisiana?
