      <p style="margin-bottom:12.0pt">Dear Friend,</p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">As all of us in Louisiana know,
        hurricane season begins today. It’s important that we all take
        the appropriate steps to ensure our families are ready to face
        the challenges that may lie ahead, and to stay informed and
        prepared. It’s never too soon to start planning how you and your
        family will react to an approaching storm. </p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">Pre-season forecasts of this hurricane
        season predict nine to fifteen named storms, of which four to
        eight are expected to become hurricanes, including one to three
        major hurricanes. </p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">We’re all acutely aware of how
        dangerous and damaging these storms can be. And we also know
        that making preparations early is the best way to help ensure
        the safety of our families, since it’s impossible to predict
        when disaster will strike. </p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">For those living in coastal and other
        vulnerable areas, the first step you should take is to decide
        where you and your family will evacuate. It’s a good idea to
        have an out-of-state friend or family member serve as a contact
        for your entire family. In the event that you and your family
        become separated, this contact will give you a common point of
        reference and a means to communicate with each other. Since cell
        phone communication can be compromised during a storm, this
        contact is essential to giving you the peace of mind that
        everyone is safe. </p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">But preparation should not be limited
        to those in the most vulnerable areas. If you do not live in the
        coastal regions, you may have family or friends there. Consider
        inviting friends and family from the south into your homes,
        since vacant hotel rooms are scarce during evacuations. Such
        generosity is crucial to those that must evacuate on such short
        notice. </p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">Remember that even homes in northern
        parts of Louisiana can be vulnerable to damage. Tornadoes,
        widespread rains and flooding can accompany hurricanes and often
        occur far from where the storm directly hits. So if you live far
        from the coast, you should still be mindful of these threats and
        can benefit from taking the necessary precautions to protect
        your home. </p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">The National Hurricane Center
        recommends that you take steps such as creating a plan for your
        family, locating a safe room or the safest areas in your home
        for each hurricane hazard, making a plan for your pets, and
        taking first aid, CPR or disaster preparedness classes. </p>
      <p style="text-indent:.3in">These are just a few of examples of
        how you can best prepare for the hurricane season. Hurricanes
        are part of life every year in Louisiana, but advance
        preparations can help reduce their impact on your family. I urge
        you to take hurricane watches and warnings seriously. Please
        plan ahead for your family’s safety and encourage your neighbors
        to do the same. </p>
      <p class="MsoNormal"><o:p> </o:p></p>
      <p>Sincerely, </p>
