St. Charles Parish uses an open re-entry approach. This practice allows all residents and business owners access as soon as authorities deem it safe to enter and move about.
However, if a storm has caused significant damage, it may be necessary to allow access to essential personnel, such first responders and cleanup crews ONLY.
St. Charles Parish authorities understand that it is important for those with assets in our parish to return quickly. The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Department and Department of Emergency Preparedness will make every effort to allow all residents back as quickly as possible following a storm-related evacuation.
Please stay tuned to local media outlets and the parish Web site at stcharlesparish-la.gov
for up-to-date re-entry information.
