OPCD Executive Director Tyrell Morris Releases Statement Regarding Tornado In New Orleans Metro Area

Statement from OPCD Executive Director Tyrell Morris

This evening the City of New Orleans experienced severe weather that has had a major impact on the metro area. Our 9-1-1 system remained stable through the event and the OPCD heroes under the headset will stand ready to assist our residents and neighbors should the need arise.

Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters in St Bernard Parish as they have suffered tremendous loss. As the sun comes up, I remind our residents to text 311937 to report down trees, power lines and to request other city services.
