All Ascension Parish inland waterways, which were previously closed due to high water and debris, will reopen at midnight.

Livingston Parish said its inland waterways will remain closed until further notice.


Statewide Closures:

I-10 W remains CLOSED at the Texas state line. The line of vehicles waiting to be detoured currently exceeds two miles.
