Damage Reports

If you hear damage reports from any of your relatives or friends staying in St. Charles Parish, please post it here or call 985-783-5050 to report. We are getting a lot of requests from people wanting to know about their neighborhoods, and we can't make it out at this time as the eye wall is over us.

I live in Ormond, we lost our Patio cover 30X20 it was ripped off of the house... we have roof damage and the wind is the worst thing at this time... on rising water at this time to report

diverwpg said...

We assume power is still on. Is that correct?

MetTiger said...

any word on montz? Particulary Country Cottege Estates?

girlsrock20588 said...

I believe Ormond power is down there is a site you can go to powered by Entergy and they tell you what areas have power outages and Ormond is one of them.

RomeroCantrelle said...

How does it look in Bayou Gauche?

geaux4lsu said...

Willowridge and Dale in good shape at this time. Trees down, minimal water in ditches. Just need to make it by later today with storm surges.

St. Charles Parish said...

We haven't heard a report on the Norco tornado. Could be very bad wind damage...

St. Charles Parish said...

At the Courthouse in Hahnville, the winds have really picked-up. Sustained winds of 50 mph and peak gust to 69 mph area occurring. All preliminary damage surveys have been halted due to the high wind gust. We may not be able to clear roadways tonight and my best estimate for re-entry is Wednesday morning. If something changes I will be sure to post it. At this time we are observing that several buildings both commercial and residential are beginning to have roofing failures. Winds are expected to subside later this evening. Tab Troxler, EOC Director

Forever Altared said...

we live on Villere Dr and would be anxious to know what kind of damage is happening aroung there. I know that many people are wanting to know the same kind of information, so patience is definitely ample! So, anyone around that area that can report what kind of damage we are looking at... much rain?

smitty said...

rob said...

does anyone have any info about those who work at bunge and stayed...is there damage there, water....what is the status of the area and homes nearby.

Dudes@Dow said...

In Taft (Dow) winds are sustained around 25 and gusts around 65ish. minimal rain so far. We think we may have heard the tornado people are blogging about in Norco area. Everyone is safe and waiting for the weather to calm down enough to survey damage. Could use updates on Bayou Gauche , Willowdale / Ridge , Vacherie and Norco as well as Gray and Houma. Of all the sites we have seen on the net it is not as bad as we all expected yet.

I live in Fashion II in Hahnville. Thanks to one of our neighbors riding it out at home we know there are fences down, some safit/facie/shingle issues in our area, but no water yet, and apparently no major structural issues. You can see photos here if you live in that area. http://www.geovista.biz/fashion.html

Any info on Red Church???? Thanks

noleveeyet said...

It's time for Willowdale/ridge to come together and resolve this levee issue. VJ, during the election we spoke about the lack of a levee and you stated that it was a permit issue, what is the update. What happens when the tax payers on the westbank leave for good. Willowdale could look like the 9th ward in a few hours with a good surge. Please help...We need a spokes person to make this happen.

wendy1221 said...

Does anyone have any info on Mimosa Ave in Luling? Thanks to all and for keeping the comments coming.

norcoboy said...

i know everyone is concerned and wants to know what is going on but i don't think we will find out to much until the parish officals go out and post it on the main page..from what i herd from a family member that stayed is that just wind damage in norco

with the tornado their wasn't a touch down or offical report

but that is all i know as far as norco...just down trees and powelines no flooding

wwl said no flooding...a little standing water but nothing bad to impeed progress or emergency cars...only thing is down powerlines

Fairfield Subdivision has power again! Lots of wind damage (mainly fences and trees - 1 carport down). No flooding!

Bertucci Lane in St. Rose also has power again, lots of trees and branches down. We already cleared the trees from our road. Also no flooding.

CarterfromLuling said...

I live on St. Anthony in Luling. My father-in-law stayed for the storm. He drove past my house and said that my house is fine and we have power! He also drove to Davis Plantation in Willowdale, there is no power. He said the main damage is power lines and trees.

smdejean said...

Glad you guys stayed safe and thanks for everything you do!! Any idea about the schools and when they will re-open? Can we please have an update on the storm surge and levee situation... Oh, and also an update on who has electricity and who does not.
Thank you very much.

TexDave said...

My Mom and Sister live on Bayou Estates South and Pine in Green Acres (Bayou Gauche). I have seen some posts about that area, but am wondering if the roof and siding damage there is extensive. My Mom is here in Texas at the time, but am concerned that I might need to return with her for repairs. If you could check a specific house number you can email me directly at davidnpatb@nctv.com
Thanks for the info found here.....

ggirlh said...

I live on Kirk St. in Paradis, does anyone have any information regarding rain or wind damage in that area? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Valentine said...

Bunge Update: Mostly superficial damage. Lost metal cladding on lower runway, 4/8 doors on flat storage blown off, good water, no electricity but main office operating under generator power. All there report in good condition.

AllisonPrendergast said...

Water levels seem okay thus far. Sellers Canal at Pier 90 is at 1.87; for Rita it was 3.15. Lafitte is 2.8; for Rita it was 5.9. So far, so good. You can check these yourself at

http://www2.mvr.usace.army.mil/WaterControl/new/layout.cfm

Under "Water levels by" choose NO District. Then sort by Barataria Basin.

The southern side of the Lock at Galliano reached as high as 7' earlier today. It's now at 4.4' so the water seems to be receding. But I think there's a high tide around midnight....

Anyway, I wanted to share.

I have been to Bayou Estates Drive and BESouth and we were very lucky. Fences and trees were down but there was only a little damage to shingles and siding. There is no power and it may been down for awhile as there was a transformer sitting on the side of the road.
