Photo Gallery / Hurricane Audrey

During the early morning hours of June 27, 1957, an early season hurricane named Audrey roared ashore Southwest Louisiana and Southeastern Texas. Audrey spread a massive storm surge across most of Cameron Parish, and across the southern halves of Vermilion, Iberia, and St. Mary Parishes, causing total devastation in property and many lives lost.
 
Hurricane Audrey is also noted as being the strongest June hurricane to make landfall within the United States, and one of only two major hurricanes to make landfall in the month of June.
