I-10 open to through-traffic

All state highways in Calcasieu Parish are open. Interstate through-traffic is now on I-10. I-210 is closed to through-traffic and is accessible only by checkpoints.

Residents staying in the parish should avoid using the Interstate system. They may not be allowed back through the checkpoints. If a parish resident needs supplies from a FEMA distribution site or from a business that is open, they should avoid using the Interstate system to go there.

No burning of anything is permissible because there is no way to fight fires that may break out. Debris can be removed and disposed of when it is safe.
