Vermilion is urging parish officials to prepare for hurricane season.

“If you prepare yourself for any type of disaster in Vermilion parish then you will be ready for anything but just don't wait until the last minute.”

Vermilion Parish Emergency Preparedness Director, Homer Stelly says all residents should prepare for the worst and hope for the best. 

“Make sure you got enough food, make sure your vehicles are tanked up, make sure all of your important papers are ready at your fingertips, so if something happens you can grab them.” Homer Stelly Said.

Stelly says after dealing with hurricane season last year , they’re still helping Vermilion Parish residents.

“You feel sorry for some of the residents. It just so happened that we live in a low line area. It’s something that you are going to face.” Homer Stelly Said.

Abbeville resident Georgette Delhomme says she is hoping storms aren't bad this season.

“We hope to take precautions and get what we need when there's a hurricane coming and just put God first with everything.” Georgette Delhomme
