Voluntary evacuation to start today in Grand Isle

A voluntary evacuation for Grand Isle will begin at 4 p.m. today, Jefferson Parish announced.

Voluntary evacuation of Jean Lafitte, Crown Point, Barataria and areas outside the parish's levee protection system will begin at noon Saturday.

Residents needing assistance evacuating from Jean Lafitte, Crown Point, Barataria and areas outside of the levee protection system, a bus will be available at Jean Lafitte Town Hall, 2654 Jean Lafitte Blvd., at 8 am. Saturday.

The buses are part of the publicly assisted evacuation plan, being tested for the first time since Hurricane Katrina demonstrated the need for governments to help stranded residents leave.

Residents who use the system will be taken to one of two pick-up sites in Jefferson, the Alario Center in Westwego or Joseph Yenni building in Elmwood. State charter buses will transport evacuees to shelters away from possible disaster zone.
