Utility crews have restored power to several hospitals near Jefferson Parish and Baton Rouge. Trees and debris that fell on the road have been completely cleared and some shops have been reopened. The city’s main airport has been reopened for commercial flights for the first time since the storm. Officials said Delta was the first airline to fly on Friday.
