Lafourche Parish curfew partially lifted

Sheriff Craig Webre reports that as of 6 AM this morning, the Lafourche Parish curfew has been lifted for the northern part of the parish to include all areas between Thibodaux and the Bellevue Bridge in Lockport. Power has been partially restored in this area and the roads cleared significantly so to allow for an easy flow of traffic.

Areas south of the Bellevue Bridge will remain under curfew as Louisiana Highway One and Highway 308 South are impassable due to debris along the roadways.  Power poles and lines suffered heavy destruction in the lower portions of Lafourche and efforts continue to clear roadways and restore power.

Understandably this is a trying time for everyone however public safety is our primary concern and deputies will continue to enforce the curfew from the Bellevue Bridge through the southern portions of the parish said Sheriff Webre.  Residents have been cooperating with deputies who are vigilantly stopping and questioning motorists on the highways.  Thus far, only four curfew violations have been issued since the onset of the parish wide curfew.
