METAIRIE, La. (WGNO) — In the wake of Hurricane Ida, false information has been spread about evacuation sites in Jefferson Parish.
On Wednesday morning, a spokesperson for Jefferson Parish sent out a notice to residents, clarifying the number of evacuation spots in the area.
“People are hearing reports that they can be evacuated from the Shrine on Airline. Please know that this is NOT an evacuation spot.”
According to the notice, the ONLY evacuation spot in Jefferson Parish currently is PARD Playground. From this location, people will be transported to a Mega Shelter in Alexandria, Louisiana.
If anyone does not have transportation to PARD, please call 349-5360 and we will provide transportation for you.
WGNO will update this information if anything changes.
