Gov. Kay Ivey announced today the deployment of 150 Alabama National Guard military police to Louisiana to aid those severely impacted by Hurricane Ida.

The order comes after her issuance of a supplemental state of emergency today to assist evacuees currently in Alabama.

“The good men and women of the Alabama National Guard always stand ready to assist their fellow Alabamians and our country, when needed,” Ivey said. “Hurricane Ida took a significant toll on our neighbors to the west, particularly in Louisiana, which is where our folks are being requested to help. Alabama continues to offer any relief we can provide.”
