NEW ORLEANS —
Jefferson Parish's 9-1-1 services have been restored. Emergency calls should be directed there.
Unfortunately, the parish's administrative line, which was what they used to route emergency calls while 9-1-1 was down, has itself experienced an outage. It's unclear when that outage will clear up.
Everyone is asked to stay home and NOT venture onto the roads unless it is absolutely necessary. Many roads are blocked by downed trees and other debris and all traffic signals are not functioning.
Cell Service and phone lines are down, including 911. If you have an emergency, you can call one of the numbers below for EMERGENCIES ONLY!
