Parish President David Peralta

Peralta talks hurricane prep at Port of NO

By Alex Galbraith
While the last 10 hurricane seasons have been incredibly taxing on the New Orleans Metro area, St. Bernard Parish President David Peralta can’t help but see a silver lining. “We all suffered,” said Peralta. “But out of that came cooperation and camaraderie the likes of which we’d never seen before.” Peralta was on hand May 30 at the Port of New Orleans for an Army Corps of Engineers’ press conference stressing hurricane preparedness. He was joined by five other parish presidents as well as members of the Corps, Coast Guard, Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority and Louisiana Flood Protection Authority.
