Terrebonne Parish President Gordon Dove has authorized the opening of the Dumas Auditorium as a temporary severe weather shelter for persons residing in a FEMA or State of Louisiana travel trailer (RV) or modular home unit due to the approaching severe weather system that will impact Terrebonne Parish today, Wednesday, March 30th.  Residents who are uncomfortable residing in their damaged homes are also encouraged to use the temporary shelter.
