Power updates

I've driven around the parish on West and East Banks in a few areas... there is power at St. Charles Plaza on Hwy. 90 as well as parts of Mimosa Park. I never lost power at my apartment... amazing! Wal-Mart is completely in the dark as is Coronado Park.

Also it appears the power is on near the refineries in Norco and on Airline Hwy. in St. Rose... as I remember more I'll post.

Also, the roof of the 90 West Restaurant (formerly Sal's) in Boutte, for lack of a better term, kind of imploded... We'll have a picture in the morning.

I'm hearing that the parish is projecting/hoping to open schols Thursday. How can you even consider this before power is restored and roads are cleared? This sounds extremely premature!*!*!*!*

I'm wondering how the Boutte area faired along Magnolia Ridge Rd. I live in Magnolia Manor subdivision just after the Magnolia Ridge curve and have seen no footage of that area or mention of power to the area. Also very concerned about schools opening on Thursday like pb.

There is no word about schools reopening Thursday.

does anyone know if there is power on Dunleith Dr in Destrehan?

My husband is in route to Destrehan/Ormond from Hattiesburg as I post. He has just crossed the state line on Hwy 59. I will post his report as soon as I receive it.

Also, if pb will recall, after Katrina the schools did not open until one week after power was restored.

I saw that power may be back on in St. Rose - can anyone confirm that? Also, does anyone know if any houses in Dianne Place sustained any serious damage?

Are there any neighboorhood specific info available? Looking for St Rose info: subdivision Bar None Ranch Estates (between St. Rose Ave and Almedia on River Road). Does it have power available? Any damage on Corral Lane? Thanks!
