Three people were injured and taken to hospital after three mobile homes were hit by storms in Louisiana, according to the Pointe Coupee Sheriff’s Office.
The situation occurred on Morel Lane in Pointe Coupee Parish. An unoccupied mobile home rolled over and two others were destroyed by the storm. The sheriff’s office said a tornado touched down in the area.
Three people suffered minor to moderate injuries. All three were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The sheriff’s office reported several trees blocking roads and power outages in the parish.
“We have received information that Waterloo Region may be without power until tomorrow morning,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post. “Please exercise caution as crews attempt to clean up/repair damage.”
In nearby Iberville Parish, the school district canceled classes Wednesday due to widespread power outages affecting schools.
“The Town of Plaquemine has been advised by Entergy that power is not expected to be restored to Plaquemine electrical customers until approximately noon tomorrow (Wednesday),” the Town of Plaquemine wrote in a Facebook post. “The company is mobilizing the heavy equipment needed to carry out the repairs, but this mobilization and the repairs will take time.”
This is a developing story.
