Tornado Damages Firehouse

In the morning hours of December 10th 2012 a tornado struck Ascension Parish, LA and damaged the 7th District Fire Department on Highway 44, likely making the fire house unusable.  Luckily none of the firefighters and rescue personnel in the fire house at the time of the tornado hit were injured.  The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking people to stay out of the area as there is damage and power outages making travel hazardous throughout the area.
