From someone living right in the middle of this disaster I can tell you that Baton Rouge and Lafayette superchargers are both operational. I had to drive from Hammond, LA to Lafayette, LA (~100 miles) day before yesterday to fill up gas cans for portable generators. I charged in Lafayette and Baton Rouge on my way back to make sure I had plenty of reserve when I got home to land of no electricity and collapsing civilization.

There are a few gas stations in the area open but the lines are so long that you may wait hours and then the station runs out of fuel before you get to the pump. That's the situation for the last week. Things are slowly improving each day.

Bottom line - I'm so glad to have my Tesla and not a gas powered vehicle. I can go days on end without needing a charge and when I do, worst case is I drive 45 miles to Baton Rouge and get a charge.

I forgot to take pictures but this one appears to have been vandalized after the recent hurricane. I tried a few of the stalls that were mostly in tact and none of them worked. I believe a Tesla employee has been out to look at the damage and decided to shut off power to the stalls.

It's now showing as live in the Nav so it should be working, but who knows... the Nav has not been terribly reliable lately in my experience. Would be nice if someone local could check it out and update this thread.

Well Southwest got their sheeeeeit together and made more direct flights available so I’ll no longer be driving through there. Hope it’s working for others sake though!
