NEW ORLEANS — About 600 elderly residents have been evacuated from their homes and five deaths at four senior apartment complexes are being investigated by Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office, following wellness checks by the New Orleans Health Department Saturday afternoon. 

Central City residents were loaded onto city buses Saturday afternoon and taken to shelter at the Morial Convention Center after two bodies were discovered in the Flint Goodridge Apartment complex, which had gone without power since Hurricane Ida hit the city. 

Additionally, one person was found dead at the Nazareth Inn 1 & 2 and another at the Christopher Inn on Saturday. On Friday, a senior was found dead at the Annunciation Inn. 

The deaths were announced by the Mayor’s Office, after the health department conducted wellness checks at eight facilities that were deemed unfit for ongoing occupancy.
