Lafourche Parish School Board members announced Wednesday that administrators will keep two schools closed Thursday as the parish continues to recover from Monday's severe weather.

Bayou Boeuf Elementary and Sixth Ward Middle Schools will remain closed. Chackbay Elementary, however, will be open.

According to the National Weather Service, Lafourche Parish took a direct hit Monday from an EF-1 tornado that carved a half-mile path through neighborhoods near Chackbay.

Forecasters classify an EF-1 tornado as a "weak" tornado, with winds between 86 and 110 mph.
