Ryan's theory could still be correct as it could still have been hot enough in Louisiana to stress them. I've seen them like this before but we've also definitely had much hotter summers than this one. I'm guessing some annoying insect. I do have a different species of crepe on the other side of the yard that remains untouched. I wonder if there is a spray for this or if I should even worry about it now in October. I also wonder if it's safe to trim them. The area needs a face-lift.
Stan, the winds were only around 50mph so I don't think that was the culprit although I suppose it's possible as I was not onsite.
Joe, is the crepe root problem curable?
