Reports from this morning 9/13/08

  • Temporary levees of sand and plastic are seeping across the roadway in the 200 - 400 block of Up the Bayou Road in Des Allemands. The water height on the road is about 2 inches. Public Works crews are out this morning sandbagging this area.

  • Bayou Gauche Island is entirely underwater. Public Works is also providing more sandbags in this area.

  • Water has blocked Hwy. 90 near the Davis Diversion and Jefferson / St. Charles line in at least two separate areas. The highway is down to one lane in these areas.  The road is still passable, but vehicles have to drive through high water. However, so far water levels in drainage ditches in the Willowridge / Willowdale area are actually lower than yesterday.

  • Evangeline Road in Montz has been barricaded. Water is coming over the tracks near Airline Hwy.

  • Water levels should begin falling early this afternoon.

  • Entergy reports there are 190 customers still left without power this morning. These are scattered in Luling, Bayou Gauche, Destrehan, and other areas.
