UPDATE: The hall reopened on Sept. 9. Power has been restored, the phones are working, and some repairs have been made (more are needed, but it’s safe to be in the building).
The hiring hall in New Orleans is closed until further notice, due to the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
Damage to the hall is not believed to be major, but that remains unconfirmed at this time. The hall definitely is without power; it may be restored by late next week, though that, too, is unofficial.
We’ll post updates as they become available. The tentative plan is to reopen the hall as soon as power is restored.
