NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Hurricane Ida slammed into the Louisiana coast on Sunday afternoon causing widespread power outages to the state. At the height of it, more than one million Louisiana residents were without electricity.
Another big issue impacting several areas on Monday morning, boil water advisories. Power outages have led to drops in water pressure, prompting these boil advisories. Town leaders say the results of LDH water testing will likely be delayed.
The following areas are currently under boil water advisories:
- Jefferson Parish
- Grand Isle
- Lafourche Parish
- St. Tammany Parish
- City of Covington
- Town of Abita Springs
- St. John the Baptist Parish
- Plaquemines Parish
- Eastbank only
- Tangipahoa Parish (issued for two of the parish’s service areas)
- West of I-55 from LA 40 south
- Club Deluxe and Veterans Boulevard from I-12 to LA 22
