St. Bernard Parish Government
Tropical Storm conditions are still in effect for all of St. Bernard Parish. Communities south of Reggio are still experiencing tidal flooding.
In an effort to alleviate the flooding in those areas, Parish Government crews are making cuts in the levees at Woodlake and Delacroix to help the areas drain. Residents in those areas are asked to be cautious.
Tropical Storm Lee is still on a very slow North East track, which will continue to impact St. Bernard Parish throughout the holiday weekend.
Intermittent rain and wind gusts are still expected to impact St. Bernard Parish through Sunday and Monday. These conditions have the potential to spawn tornadoes with very little warning, so residents are asked to limit travel.
Residents may contact the parish Emergency Operations Center at 278-4268 if they have any issues to report or if they need to ask for assistance.
