Some roads open, water level reported rising this morning

According to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office the dusk to dawn curfew has been lifted today, however, a curfew will still be in effect from 10 p.m.-6 a.m. as much of the parish is still without power.

Residents are now allowed to re-enter the parish, but officials warn very few businesses are in operation.

The I-310 bridge has also been reopened after closing for part of yesterday.

The Sheriff’s Office urges those who do not need to be out to stay home.

Officials are also monitoring high water levels caused by storm surge on the south side of St. Charles from the Jefferson Parish Line through Des Allemands. As of this morning the storm surge was rising to the South and Bayou Des Allemands levels were approaching the record highs seen during Hurrican Juan a few years ago. Also as of this morning risk of flooding in lower lying neighborhoods on the West Bank was a possibility due to storm surge.
