Thanks Tab! I will be following the blog to check for reentry time.(The actual time O'clock) Everyone at EOC and our parish government are the best!!! Can you mention damage and flooding in Norco when you get a chance? BE SAFE everyone!

Tab:

What's the status of this reported tornado in the Mimosa Park/Boutte area? And how are the surge reports? Any news yet on that regard?

It looks like St. Charles hasn't been slammed as bad as it could've been.

Keep up the good work, Tab.

Thanks very much for these updates. More personal - local - and immediate than the news media can provide about our home area. Any word about Ashton Plantation? Should we plan on driving back on Wednesday, then? Are there any restrictions on travel via I-10 from the east?
Thanks again - and God bless!

WWL-TV have reported that the Monsanto Dock and the Water Intake were hit.

There are 5 barges on the river moving up river from St. Rose area.

Yes, that's upriver...the wind is pushing them up. Stalled in the Luling Bend...and NOT approaching the I-310 bridge yet.

Tab & Renee: If the Water Intake is damaged it could be off-line for a couple weeks. Please give us a confirmed report on this when you can. Thanks!

Thank you, keep safe. Would like to hear about the Red Church area when the weather permits.

The tornado report is refuted... we are traveling in Mimosa now.

St. Charles Parish said...

We hear from EOC that the intake structure was hit but that it is not affecting intake.... more when we get back...

John said...

Thanks guys! Excellent job!

Is there news of any current flooding of Desoto Drive in Coronado Park? As it floods in heavy rains, an expected storm surge is worrying.It msy be too early to even ask this question.

sweilers said...

Any word on damage to homes in Ormond Estates?

Madison said...
