The City of New Iberia is ready...

Even though hurricanes, flooding and other natural disasters are not everyday occurrences in our community, Mayor Hilda D. Curry values the benefits of being prepared.

When a hurricane watch or warning has been issued, stay near your television to get updates on KATC TV3 (Channel 4 on Cable TV) www.katc.com; KLFY TV10 (Channel 11 on Cable TV), www.klfy.com;  or listen to radio stations KANE AM 1240, www.kane1240.com, and KXKC FM 99.1 www.kxkc.com for local information and instructions. The media will be informed of all pertinent information, including shelters that may be open, any evacuation orders, and/or school closings.

After a hurricane passes, listen to media before returning to the area, and upon returning to your home, check for damage before turning utilities back on. Be sure to have necessary repairs made before restoring utilities.
