It was a good early-season reminder that God laughs at those who predict how active or mild a Hurricane Season might be.
So we hope you have your own hurricane plan and are stocked up on all the necessary supplies. We also hope you are one of the thousands of local folks who have formed private online neighborhoods with your neighbors, friends or family on the free SWLA Connected app.
Olivia Vidal is the director of SWLA Connected, and is taking her very interesting story to civic organizations, neighborhood watch groups, churches, schools and businesses in our area. If you'd like to get Olivia scheduled to talk to your organization as well, just call her at 437-7544.
We believe strongly in the power of staying connected and doing it securely, without the silliness and privacy concerns of Facebook, email or other apps. SWLA Connected is the next step in social media. It's hyper-local, secure, and designed to help you connect with the people who matter most to you.
Thousands have already signed up to SWLA Connected and hundreds of private online neighborhoods have been created. Now's the time to sign up in your app store or desktop so that if a hurricane does head our way, you'll be ready.
Just call Olivia Vidal at 437-7544 to schedule a presentation. Don't be left in the dark this Hurricane Season. Stay in touch with what matters. Rain or shine, SWLA Connected is helping build a better Southwest Louisiana.
