According to City Administrator John Cardone, all city of Lake Charles administrative offices and services, including City Hall, will be closed during regular business hours on Tuesday due to the threat of inclement weather.

Transit operations will be suspended during this time as road conditions could be dangerous.

Trash and garbage pickup will not run on Tuesday.

An update on when services are expected to resume, including an updated trash and garbage collection schedule, will be released on Tuesday.

The area is under a Flash Flood Warning until further notice. Motorists are asked to not travel down flooded streets and to use extreme caution if they must travel through the City. Public safety and public works crews will be continuously monitoring street conditions.

Residents are also asked to bring in and secure their trash cans and any loose items around their property ahead of the anticipated rainfall.

City crews and contractors are out inspecting low-lying areas and clearing debris from flat grills, catch basins and drainage culverts. If a resident sees debris blocking one of these items near their home, and if it is safe to do so, please remove it. These issues can also be reported by calling 337-491-1346 or
