As Ida techniques the coastline, and perhaps Acadiana, community grocery stores are getting ready to help people.

At Shawn’s Cajun Meats and Grocery in Delcambre, the retail store is no stranger to storm harm. In 2005, the Shawn’s was demolished by Hurricane Rita.

Pat Darby, a cook at Shawn’s, stated the location is vulnerable to collecting a lot of h2o.

“Get well prepared, continue to be calm, and if they tell you evacuate in this space, evacuate – don’t try to trip it out,” Darby claimed.

Jimmy Wyman is a resident of New Iberia. He informed KATC he determined to get a head start on hurricane prep to conquer the strains above the weekend.

“They not lousy appropriate now, but they fixin’ to get bad,” Wyman stated. “I would say starting off tomorrow or this afternoon, yeah, particularly with the cone showin’ straight toward Louisiana.”

Objects to think about buying to make certain your home is well prepared are:

  • Flashlights
  • Lighters or matches
  • Charcoal
  • Candles
  • Bottled drinking water
  • Canned foods
  • Portable chargers
  • Batteries

According to the Red Cross, every household really should have 3 times value of nonperishable foodstuff and water – precisely, a gallon of h2o for each man or woman, per working day.
