Louisiana is at risk from natural and man-made disasters. Flooding, tropical storms, and hurricanes happen. To stay safe, sometimes you and your family will need to leave home before a storm comes.

People in Louisiana need to be ready for emergencies. This guide will help you get prepared.


This "Preparing for Storms in Louisiana" manual is designed in Plain Language to teach the concepts of risk as subject matter in literacy programs and teach literacy through risk education. The second edition was updated based on feedback on the first edition from adult literacy providers.
