Hurricane season sparks anxieties


CHAUVIN, La. — Terri Broussard knows when it's hurricane season: Calls for refills of nerve-calming meds start piling up at the doctor's office where she works in this bayou community.
Vernon Bourgeois, sheriff of Terrebonne Parish, starts attending more emergency planning meetings.

Connie Townsend hears it in the customer chatter at her cafe.

The North Atlantic hurricane season begins Monday. And few places are more aware of that than this small fishing community about 70 miles southwest of New Orleans. Chauvin (pronounced sho-VAN) has been hit six times in six years by storms that peeled off roofs and flooded homes.


Chauvin typifies the communities throughout the USA that have become increasingly sensitized to hurricanes and the chaos they bring.

It's going around.
I bought a used generator at pennies on the dollar and got a propane grill a few weeks ago. The prices on generators will spike as soon as they announce the first tropical depression.

It's just a part of life near the coast.

Tropical Depression 1 is up and running in the Atlantic. Soon comes the storms.
