BATON ROUGE - Flooding, road conditions and power outages in the wake of Isaac led officials to keep state offices in 13 parishes closed Friday.

Commissioner of Administration Paul Rainwater announced state offices would be closed in the following parishes:

  • Plaquemines
  • St. Bernard
  • Orleans
  • Jefferson
  • Lafourche
  • Terrebonne
  • Assumption
  • Ascension
  • Livingston
  • St. Helena
  • Tangipahoa
  • Washington
  • St. Tammany
State offices in all other parishes, including East Baton Rouge, will re-open Friday.
Rainwater said department heads would have some discretion to close their offices if they had isolated storm damage, power outages or road conditions that would make it unsafe for employees to come to work.
State employees with any questions should call 1-800-360-9660 or 225-342-0498.
