Our Region

The coastal Louisiana parishes of Terrebonne and Lafourche are located along the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 60 miles southwest of New Orleans.  The City of Houma is the economic hub of the region.

Over 200,000 residents in this nationally significant area are currently living and working without any form of hurricane protection,
along with hundreds of businesses that support America’s oil and gas production and valuable seafood harvest.  

In the summer of 2005, over 10,000 homes and businesses in our unprotected coastal communities like Chauvin, Bayou Dularge, Dulac and Montegut were inundated by up to nine feet of tidal surge as Category 3 Hurricane Rita approached the southwest corner of Louisiana, approximately 180 milesto the west of Terrebonne Parish. Over $75 million in damage was caused by 40-mile-per-hour south winds from a storm that did not even hit our coast!
