The mandatory evacuations for low-lying areas of Jefferson Parish outside the levee system have been lifted.

Residents of Lafitte, Crown Point, Barataria, the town of Jean Lafitte and Grand Isle are being allowed to return. The parish recommends doing so only in a truck or SUV or other high-riding vehicle as there is still some high water in some areas.

Grand Isle is enforcing a dusk-to-dawn curfew while power is being restored.
