Portions of lower Jefferson Parish took quite a beating from Hurricane Isaac as it entered Louisiana.
But, the recovery of coastal Jefferson is now in full swing.
The biggest issue is still water in lower Lafitte, Crown Point and Barataria that's continuing to be pumped out today.
"Some power is starting to be restored," says Parish Councilman Chris Roberts. "There are a number of homes and businesses that did flood...even in some cases, those that had elevated. So, it's going to be a long-term recovery for us in those communities."
He says the situation in Grande Isle is a bit different, since most of the structures there are elevated. Roberts says there was some minor cosmetic damage done on some of the structures..."But, for the most part, the island fared fairly well."
He says, unlike with Hurricane Gustav, the levee on the beach side of the island remained pretty much intact after dealing with Isaac.
The longest numbered highway in Louisiana, which leads to those lower Jefferson communities, suffered some damage from the storm.
"There were a number of wash-outs along La.1, particularly from Grande Isle to Port Fourchon," Roberts says.
The highway was shut down at 6 o'clock Sunday evening for repairs. So the roadway's accessible today, but some work may continue in spots.
