This evening, a severe weather event occurred in St. John Parish consisting of heavy rains, winds, and power outages.
Entergy crews are in the process of restoring power and are close to completion; however, residents on West 5th Street between Hemlock and Dupont are the largest area without power, which is expected to be restored within the next two hours.
Elm Street, Cambridge, and West 5th Street experienced fallen trees, but no injuries were reported. Minor traffic light damage occurred throughout LaPlace during the weather event.
St. John Parish officials will continue to communicate with Entergy and the 911 center for updates on power outages and parish-wide damages. Updates will be posted online as they become available.
