LIVINGSTON – Officials have ended a curfew for Livingston Parish after severe weather brought record rainfall to the parish last week.

Parish President Layton Rick announced Wednesday that the curfew was lifted.

Rick and Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard issued the curfew last week that only allowed emergency responders to travel in flood effected areas after dusk. The curfew was only in effect for areas that experienced severe flooding.

School officials closed schools Monday due to widespread flooding and storm damage. Schools resumed Tuesday.
