With Tropical Storm Ida moving rapidly and anticipated to reach the Gulf of Mexico in the next 24 hours, we are asking people to start taking precautions for severe weather over the next several days.
“Team Slidell is ready,” said Mayor Cromer. “Our crews are cleaning out ditches and catch basins and making sure that drainage around the city is clear. All of our pumps are working and ready.”
Citizens are encouraged to check their storm drains near their homes to make sure they are cleared of debris and to clear their yards of any items that could be blown around by heavy winds.
Stay tuned for updates on the City of Slidell’s website at MySlidell.com and St. Tammany Parish’s website at STPgov.org.
