City of New Orleans - Tuesday update on Hurricane Sally

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) -Mayor LaToya Cantrell and Director of Homeland Security Collin Arnold held a news conference Tuesday to provide updates on Hurricane Sally.

Hurricane warnings and flood watches have been dropped for southeast Louisiana.

Mandatory evacuation remains in effect for low-lying areas outside the levee protection system.

“What a difference a day makes. We still have a rather large storm off of our coast that is projected to move north. We think about our neighbors in Mississippi and Alabama. A few days ago that could have been us," Arnold said.

Parking restrictions on neutral grounds and sidewalks will go back into effect at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16. Residents are asked to remove their vehicles from neutral grounds by that time.

Regularly scheduled trash and recycling collection will resume Wednesday. Customers should place their bins curbside after 4 p.m.

Bus and streetcar service is expected to be fully operational by 4 p.m. today. Ferry service remains suspended due to port restrictions.
