LIVINGSTON -- All Livingston Parish waterways will reopen at 6 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, according to Brandi A. Janes, deputy director with the Livingston Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (LOHSEP)

“In conjunction with Ascension and Tangipahoa Parishes, all waterways within Livingston Parish will be reopened to all traffic,” she said Wednesday, Oct. 11.

LOHSEP, in conjunction with Ascension Parish, declared all Livingston Parish waterways closed to all non-emergency response personnel on Tuesday, Oct. 3

The closure came as a result of weather conditions and the rising of waterway levels, as Hurricane Nate entered the Gulf of Mexico and turned toward a Louisiana or Mississippi landfall.
