Facts about Grand Isle, Louisiana
Grand Isle (French: Grande-Île) is a town in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, located on a barrier island of the same name in the Gulf of Mexico. The island is at the mouth of Barataria Bay where it meets the gulf. As of the 2010 census, the town's resident population was 1,296; during summers, the population including tourists and seasonal residents sometimes increases to over 20,000. Grand Isle is statistically part of the New Orleans−Metairie−Kenner Metropolitan Statistical Area, though it is not connected to New Orleans' continuous urbanized area.Grand Isle's main street is the seaside start of Louisiana Highway 1 (LA 1), which stretches 436.2 miles away to the northwest corner of the state, ending near Shreveport, Louisiana. LA 1's automobile causeway at the west end of the island is the only land access to or from Grand Isle. Direct access to Grand Isle's seat of parish government is 95 miles (153 km) away in suburban Jefferson Parish, which leaves the town somewhat politically isolated.

On average, Grand Isle has been affected by tropical storms or hurricanes every 2.68 years since 1877, with hurricane direct hits on average every 7.88 years [http://www.hurricanecity.com/city/grandisle.htm]. Large sections of levee/dunes were washed onto Highway 1. A news report published less than two days after the hurricane hit falsely noted, however, that the area had been completely destroyed, reporting a scenario similar to that which befell Last Island, Louisiana Island in 1856. In 1956 Hurricane Flossy damaged the island. In the 1893 Atlantic hurricane season Grand Isle was devastated by a storm surge.
