Storm-related power outages in St. John the Baptist Parish are leading to early dismissals at several public schools.
The Garyville-Mt. Airy Math and Science Magnet School, the St. John Child Development Center and West St. John High School will dismiss early at 1:15 p.m., schools spokeswoman Jennifer Bouqet said. West St. John Elementary School will dismiss at 1:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, St. Charles Parish residents are being asked to limit wastewater usage for now due to the heavy rain and power outages, particularly in Paradis and Bayou Gauche, said parish spokeswoman Renee Allemand Simpson. This includes not washing clothes, washing dishes and flushing toilets.
In St. Charles, more than 3,100 households were without power by 12:30 p.m., according to Entergy Louisiana. In St. John, nearly 2,530 households had lost power.
