The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles says the time is now to renew certain paperwork items in case a hurricane or tropical storm hits town.
OMV officials say residents shouldn't wait to renew their driver's licenses, vehicle registrations, and ID cards. A severe storm can cause widespread power outages, making renewals impossible.
Credentials may be needed to obtain housing, food, and other assistance after a storm.
The items in question may be renewed up to 90 days before the expiration date at expresslane.org.
