DSNAP provides eligible low- to moderate-income households - who do not normally receive SNAP benefits - with help buying groceries due to lost income or damages following a disaster.
If you have been affected by #HurricaneLaura, you can REGISTER NOW for DSNAP. Registration does not guarantee benefits but will make the application process easier and quicker if a DSNAP is approved for your community.

Current SNAP recipients do not need to register. If SNAP clients are eligible for additional benefits, those benefits would be loaded onto their EBT cards automatically or the SNAP recipients would have to submit a form through a different process.

Register for DSNAP at http://dcfs.louisiana.gov/dsnap.

In anticipation of any community/household damages as a result of Hurricane Laura, the UHN has created a web portal where tribal citizens may be able to report damages directly to Administration should we be able to provide assistance.

The link to access the webform is: https://unitedhoumanation.org/hurricane-laura-portal/

We pray that there is little to no need to use the portal; however, we want to be proactive for our tribal citizens and able to respond as quickly as possible.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Laura was
located near latitude 21.7 North, longitude 82.2 West. Laura is
moving toward the west-northwest near 20 mph (31 km/h), and this
general motion with some decrease in forward speed is expected over
the next day or so. A turn toward the northwest is forecast by
Wednesday, and a northwestward to north-northwestward motion should
continue through Wednesday night. On the forecast track, the center
of Laura will cross western Cuba this evening and move into the
southeastern Gulf of Mexico overnight. Laura is then forecast to
move over the central and northwestern Gulf of Mexico Tuesday night
and Wednesday, and approach the northwestern coast of the Gulf of
Mexico Wednesday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Strengthening is expected when the storm moves over the Gulf of
Mexico, and Laura is foreast to become a hurricane by late Tuesday.
Additional strengthening is forecast on Wednesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km)
primarily to the northeast and east of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Laura can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT3 and WMO header WTNT43 KNHC.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could
reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated
areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

High Island TX to Morgan City LA including Sabine Lake, Calcasieu
Lake, and Vermilion Bay...7-11 ft
Port Bolivar TX to High Island TX...4-6 ft
Morgan City LA to Mouth of the Mississippi River...4-6 ft
Mouth of the Mississippi River to Ocean Springs MS including Lake
Borgne...3-5 ft
San Luis Pass TX to Port Bolivar TX...2-4 ft
Galveston Bay...2-4 ft
Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas...2-4 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to
the right of the landfall location, where the surge will be
accompanied by large and destructive waves. Surge-related
flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal
cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For information
specific to your area, please see products issued by your local
National Weather Service forecast office.

RAINFALL: Laura is expected to produce the following storm total
rainfall accumulations into tonight:

Western Jamaica, Western Cuba and the Cayman Islands: 4 to 6 inches,
with maximum amounts of 10 inches. Across the Greater Antilles this
heavy rainfall could lead to life-threatening flash and urban
flooding, and the potential for mudslides.

From Wednesday afternoon into Saturday, Laura is expected to produce
rainfall of 4 to 8 inches, with isolated maximum amounts of 12
inches across portions of the west-central U.S. Gulf Coast near the
Texas and Louisiana border north into portions of the lower
Mississippi Valley. This rainfall could cause widespread flash and
urban flooding, small streams to overflow their banks, and minor to
isolated moderate river flooding.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to spread westward
within the warning area in western Cuba through this evening.
Tropical storm conditions are also expected within the warning area
in the middle and lower Florida Keys and the Dry Tortugas tonight.

Hurricane conditions are possible in the hurricane watch area along
the Gulf Coast by late Wednesday, with tropical storm conditions
possible by Wednesday afternoon.

SURF: Swells generated by Laura are affecting portions of Cuba, the
central Bahamas, and the Florida Keys. Swells are expected to
spread northward along portions of the west coast of Florida
peninsula and the coast of the Florida panhandle on Tuesday
and Tuesday night, and reach the northern and northwest Gulf coast
by Wednesday. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf
and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your
local weather office.

TORNADOES: An isolated tornado is possible through tonight across
the Florida Keys.

Going to be talking about this event this afternoon during Louisiana Today with Joey Sanders at 6pm.
Thibodaux, LA - Since it currently appears that Tropical Storm Nate MAY intensify in to a minimal hurricane by this weekend, Mayor Tommy Eschete is recommending everyone begin the process of putting their own emergency plans in to effect. It is forecast that this storm will impact southeast Louisiana with rain and high winds as early as late Saturday afternoon in to Sunday, Oct. 8. Everyone should stay tuned to television or radio weather forecasts and take all precautions necessary to deal with this weather event. Residents are advised to pick up all loose items from their yards which may be blown around by the potentially high winds. In addition, please check all the ditches and catch basins around your home to insure that our drainage infrastructure is able to handle any heavy rain this system generates. As usual, sand bags are available to all residents at our Public Works building, 1219 Henry S. Thibodaux St. We will deliver bags to our disabled residents upon request. These requests can be made by calling (985) 446-7223.
