Anyone know about Charlestowne, apartments on East Club Dr in St Rose?

jgduro said...

What about Paradis?? I live near the fire station on Barber Rd. Is there power in that area??

mimosadeb said...

Rene ... thank you is no strong enough word to express the gratitude for every bit of info that has been posted. It may not benefit every single person in the community, but it all helps so very much. GREAT JOB being done by all those folks who stayed behind in the parish. Many thanks.

Any word on the power restoration process for the sewerage lift plants? We live in Mimosa Park, the part w/no power (St Nicholas & St Anthony streets), our decision to come home is based on the sewerage system (the more people back, the more likely for backups in the system).

Again, thanks

Does anyone know if River Park Drive in Hahnville has power? I wanna go home but it's impossible to find a hotel in New Orleans, Metairie, or other surrounding areas. We had a reservation at the Ramada on River Road but were bumped off for the entergy workers without a call notifiyng us. Amazing that they have power but in that area but others close by don't? Can have entergy workers without power in their rooms but the locals can suffer! Sorry, I'm trying not to be frustrated but I wanna go home as do others. I do appreciate the work that the entergy workers are putting in.

Andrea said...

thanks for the updates on power. it is greatly appreciated! as you update this list, would it be possible to organize it by area (such as hahnville, luling, norco, etc.)?

whd said...

Does anyone know if there is power in Lakewood East yet? Thanks.

rockalley said...

Willowridge??? Any word on when we will have power. I am stuck in Pensacola and have to return to work on Saturday and have no idea how I'm supposed to do that without power......

deedy said...

Is Ama in the works for having electricity being restored within the next hours or days? Davis Plantation and Barton Ave. are both restored and are very near in vicinity to Ama.

STAT said...

To WHD:

No power in Lakewood East, yet.

angellederoche said...

Does anyone know about Lagatutta subdivision?

whd said...

thanks STAT

mominluling said...

Anyone know about Sugarhouse Road in Luling? Seems that there's power all around Sugarhouse, but I haven't heard anything about Sugarhouse in particular. Any info will be appreciated!!

Lisa said...

Any information on Charlestowne? Is power on there? We've been trying to find out, but have had no luck. Thanks!

I drove into Ormond for a look see yesterday. It looks like Entergy is making good progress. I noticed that the houses on CC side of Villere had power. I did not drive down Villere to see how many houses had it. It seems like Entergy may be focusing on business locations first. I noticed nearly all the food service locations in the front of Ormond and down Ormond blvd. had power. On the West bank, popeyes and some other resteraunts had power also.

If anyone notices power on Ormond Trace, please post it.

MoGros said...

Paradis south side for sure out of power. All along Barber road out of power.

St. Charles Parish said...

We were informed by Entergy that the Willowdale / Willowridge area may be one of the last locations within St. Charles Parish to get power because of the extensive interference with trees in that area. As a fellow resident I am also disappointed, however, I assure everyone Entergy is getting the job done quickly and efficiently. Many of the current outages are grid related and not the service lines. We are expecting a large number homes to be back on power this evening. Again please be patient.

Chris said...

I live on Arlington Dr off of Ormond Blvd. We have power and water. Limited water and sewer to help out the sewer lift stations. I just went to Winn Dixie in the front on Airline and the shelves are well stocked with pretty much everything. We just got back yesterday.

m said...

Does anyone know if Brandon Hall Drive in Destrehan, LA has any lights?

Sorry but as of late Thurs morning Bar None Ranch was still without power - along with Oak Manor. I am trying to get my parents back to the Ranch so as soon as I know they have power I will blog it. I am one of the few blessed ones in Norco who received power on Tuesday.

trout328 said...

I am hearing spotty reports of power coming back to Norco. All of Giacomo, all of Apple St., and parts of Highland Estates fronting 5th street and a couple of houses fronting 4th street. Are they working from Airline to the River or are they using some other method to determine where power is brought up?

Becki said...

In NORCO, West Pine and Payne have power.

GreenFamily said...

I live in Lakewood Estates in Lulnig (new subdivision at end of Lakewood Dr) and we do not have power yet.

restlessinatl said...

Lisa, I have heard that there is no power in Charlestowne. Not sure if its true of all of it but I called the leasing office and they told me no power or water.

Wendy said...

Greenfamily -

Any major damage in Lakewood Estates. I am on Allison. When ever the power comes back on can you PLEASE post it. I have to very small children who can not be in the heat. Thanks so much.

Lisa said...

Thanks for the info restlessinatl.

Mike said...

NORCO Power??? Is there any way to find when the remaining parts of Norco will powered? I live north of 8th street on Marino...

Sidney said...

This site has been our life line to our home. For those of us scattered all over-especially out of state, this was the only way we knew what was happening. We had no local coverage. I just want to say thank you to all of you who took the time to update us with items in our neighborhood. Thanks to each and every person from the officials down to the individuals. This is one reason we call St Charles Parish our home--everyone cares!

hahnvillemom said...

Renee, Tab, staff in St. Charles thanks so much for keeping us informed on this site: video, blogging, etc... It is so nice to have a direct link to our local parish government and not have to rely on here say or the occassional ticker at the bottom of a tv station. I spoke to a neighbor on River Park Drive in Hahnville a few minutes ago. Still NO POWER. :( A lot of the neighbors are back roughing it with generators here and there. I am still out of state staying with relatives and my children. Hope to be home soon. Good luck everyone and God speed.

loccobusdriver said...

NO Power in Paradis as of yet!

nervousnurse said...

There is no power on Riverview Dr. in St. Rose and no telephone service from Cox.

savedbyHisLife said...

Thank you so much St. Charles Parish officials and Entergy and to all associated with cleaning up this mess and restoring electricity to our homes and keeping us informed throughout all of this. I appreciate all you've done. You guys are the heroes!!

teachsstcharles said...

mbsjps said...

Does anyone have info on Oaklawn Ridge Sub-division ?

St. Charles Parish said...

There is a Red Cross shelter in St. Charles Parish. The number for more info is 504-620-3105.

Denise said...

Renee, on the blog - areas with power - is that updated also.

St. Charles Parish said...

It is updated as soon as we get information from callers and/or posters. Also all our telephone operators have the updated info.

rayc325 said...

Any reason power just went down in Ormond (E. Woodlawn area) ? Thanks

JABoudreaux said...

AMAMOM- I've been told by a neighbor who works for Entergy that our power in Ama should be back on by tonight. They were fixing the re-entry feeders at the grain elevator...so let's keep our fingers crossed.

Denise said...

What is the number for the telephone operators?

St. Charles Parish said...

St. Charles EOC - 985-783-5050

Tameka said...

Charlestowne, Ole Man River, Steamboat Cove and River Road Apartements are completely in the dark. No electricity anywhere (unless you have a generator)

Tameka said...

Why does St Rose have only one street with power?

CRR21 said...

Does anyone know when will Coronado Subdivison get electricity?

cajun1961 said...

Someone just told me that Lagattuta won't have power for several days, that we are tied in to the same transformers as Willowdale and Willowridge. Does anyone know if this is truth or fiction? I still haven't seen any Entergy workers around Lagattuta.

Jeremy said...

Wendy, I believe we live right next door to you. I don't see any damage to your home at all. Matter of fact I havn't seen any other houses in our sub that has damage besides us, and our damage is a very small amount. Hope this helps ease your mind. We are staying on Wanda with Family until power is back on so if you need any other info on our sub let me know.

mikemndi said...

What's the prognosis for Dianne Place in St. Rose?

Denise said...

Thank you very much for this website. It is a blessing to everyone that uses it. I never thought when I was asking about power to my home that some of you working this website also did not have power to your homes. I apologize and Thank you for all that you have done and are doing. God Bless you and your families.

gwarox said...

FINALLY! Riverview Drive and Rue Landry got power at 10PM on Friday

concernedmom said...

Are the children that are still without basic utilities required to be at school on Wednesday if they still have no power? I don't want to subject my children to living with no electricity if it isn't absolutely necessary. I don't want them to be penalized for missing school though. Can anyone fill me in on this concern?

Jim said...

EOC,
WHAT ABOUT BOUTTE? MAGNOLIA MANOR OFF MAGNOLIA RIDGE?
