On August 8, 2023, Mayor LaToya Cantrell signed a State of Emergency Declaration in anticipation of peak hurricane season and the ongoing, unprecedented extreme heat New Orleans is experiencing.
City officials stressed concerns that, in the event of a tropical storm or hurricane, any significant power utility disruption while under extreme heat conditions will likely greatly increase the danger of injury or death, especially among the elderly and vulnerable, due to heat related illnesses.
These hot temperatures can become life-threatening if the proper precautions are not taken. Residents can visit https://weatherwise.nola.gov/ to find localized updates on weather conditions when considering outdoor activities.
