In Vermilion Parish, officials are issuing a voluntary evacuation ahead of Tropical Storm Cindy making landfall.

The Vermilion Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness took to social media to advise those residents who live in low-lying areas, and those who are mobility-impaired to leave their homes.

Heeding the voluntary evacuation warnings, not only means safety for you and your families, but it also protects our community's first responders in the case that you may have to be rescued.

Tropical Storm Cindy will bring several inches of rain to south Louisiana, even before it makes landfall between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
