County officials throughout southeast Texas are monitoring Cindy. Most expect rain to have the biggest effect on our area.
Hardin County Judge Wayne McDaniel said, “At this time, we expect a rain event, primarily, from this storm. But, that could change and we ask that all citizens continue to monitor Cindy with us by following your local news media and reputable social media outlets, such as the Hardin County Emergency Management, National Weather Service, Lake Charles, and National Hurricane Center Facebook pages. Everyone is encouraged to prepare for the possibility of power outages – Make sure all electronics and flashlights are fully charged or have new batteries; store all yard and patio furniture, toys, potted plants and other loose objects indoors; bring pets inside; and stock up on food and supplies. It would also be a good idea to fill your car and gas cans with gas. Stay away from any downed power lines and if you utilize a portable generator, please DO NOT bring operate it indoors.”
