Parish Pres. Aaron Broussard was on 850 am at apprx. 11:05 CST. Stated (forgive the paraphrasing): "Jefferson Parish will be closed until next Monday (the 5th) at 6am....state police and National Guard will refuse entrance during that time by way of an executive order that is to be issued....personal identification will be required....you will be advised to get the essentials from your homes, but not to stay.Even if you're not from there, and even if you don't know anyone there, take a look at these forums. It gives you a pretty good idea of the enormity and seriousness of this situation. I suspect there will be opportunities to help out, volunteer, give money.
