Hahnville, LA – The St. Charles Parish Department of Emergency Preparedness and Homeland Security has added two new WeatherSTEM stations thanks to a local industry partner. The new stations are at the Killona Volunteer Fire Department and the Willowridge Pump Station.

The new stations are equipped with cameras, which allow users to get a live view of the weather conditions in that area. Strategically placed, these stations are equipped with robust capabilities and sensors to detect weather conditions around the Parish. Data from the system is updated by the second for the most up-to-date information. To access the WeatherSTEM data, residents can visit www.stcharles.weatherstem.com.
