Parts of south Louisiana has been hit by multiple tornadoes this morning, which were spawned by a a storm system traveling through the state.

According to the Louisiana Radio Network:

 

There’s extensive tornado damage in New Orleans east after a large twister ripped through the area around 11 o’ clock this morning. Governor John Bel Edwards has declared a state of emergency as his office says as at least six tornadoes caused severe damage, including multiple injuries and dozens of homes and business were damaged.”

 

It appears the hardest hit area in our state is New Orleans East. Local authorities claim at least 60 homes and businesses were damaged by the storm cell in that area, and 25 people were injured. New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu held a press conference which he said, “Please do not try to come to New Orleans East, it is totally shut down.”

This is a developing story and we will update you once more information becomes available.
