"We are very proud of being named a "Certified Retirement Community". There is no doubt Tangipahoa is a welcoming community and an exceptional place to live. Being able to choose the swamps of Manchac to the rolling hills of Kentwood, Tangipahoa offers it all. I too, want to commend Tangi Tourism for an excellent presentation so we can be recognized for such an honor and distinction."
- Robby Miller, Tangipahoa Parish President

BATON ROUGE, La. – Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser, along with the Louisiana Office of Tourism, announced the addition of two Louisiana communities designated as a Louisiana Certified Retirement Community – the city of Kaplan and Tangipahoa Parish.

“I want to congratulate officials with the city of Kaplan and Tangipahoa Parish for their tireless work in making their communities friendly and attractive to retirees,” said Lieutenant Governor Billy Nungesser. “With nearly 76 million baby boomers nearing retirement in the coming years, many states are working to draw them to their areas, and we thought we should take advantage to not only grow tourism but help spur economic development.”

BATON ROUGE (February 15, 2019) – Gov. John Bel Edwards has signed a proclamation marking the week of February 17th to February 23rd as “Severe Weather Awareness Week” in Louisiana. The Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP), the National Weather Service (NWS) and other partners at the local, state and federal level encourage the public to Get A Game Plan to protect themselves, their families and their homes in the event of severe weather.

“Some severe weather events happen with little notice in Louisiana,” said GOHSEP Director James Waskom. “That can cause dangerous conditions to develop quickly and having your personal emergency plans in place can save lives. GOHSEP and our partners use this time to provide critical information to the public on various weather threats in Louisiana and to provide steps you can take to prepare now. Check out GOHSEP’s Facebook and Twitter accounts starting Sunday. We hope you use this information to prepare now, before you face a weather related emergency. Stay weather aware by knowing your forecast and take time to learn the meaning of weather alerts issued by the National Weather Service and other weather experts in the media.”
