Customer Advisory: Port of New Orleans Assessing Damage from Hurricane Ida
August 30, 2021
As reported across media outlets, Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana on Sunday, causing widespread power and telephone outages in the New Orleans metro area – affecting 911 services as well.
The Port of New Orleans remains closed today (Monday, August 30, 2021). It is reported that the Port of NOLA has experienced minor damages. However, the US Coast Guard must assess navigation along the Mississippi River before vessels are permitted to move. Local crews members are strained as they struggle to get their homesteads secure before returning to work.
