HOUMA, La. (WVUE) - Terrebonne Parish is now under a curfew until 6 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 29 due to Hurricane Zeta, Parish President Gordon Dove and Sheriff Tim Soignet announced in a joint statement at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28.

“It was necessary to put the curfew in effect for the safety of the public given road blockages and down power lines throughout the parish,” Dove said.
