Storm report: Just reported on WWL-TV, Jefferson Parish residents will be allowed to return in one week to collect necessary items. They will then be required to leave again for a period of one month. Photo id will be required to prove residence in Jefferson Parish before being allowed to enter.
Jefferson is the area just to the west of New Oreleans, and includes Metairie, Kenner, and much of the West Bank area. Now we're starting to get some idea of the scope of the problem.
