Due to damage from Hurricane Ida, large portions of I-10 are currently shut down with standing water and other harmful conditions making it impossible to get through.

Melissa Matey of the Louisiana State Police spoke with WWL's Newell Normand, giving an update on what major roads, highways, and interstates can be traveled.

With power outages across most of the state, one of the issues Matey has been dealing with is communication as people are calling to try and get back into the state as well as leave the state.

"We're getting a lot of messages, and we're answering them as we can, but of course spotty communication and internet," she shared.
