This is the St. Charles Parish EOC with an important message regarding the tropical system Isaac. The EOC is fully activated and taking actions for preparation for this storm, with the parish currently being under a hurricane watch. Parish President V.J. St. Pierre has declared a state of emergency.

Due to the severity of storm surge and flooding, an evacuation could be called as early as this evening. Residents who wish to leave before an evacuation is called are encouraged to do so. Information on assisted evacuation will be forthcoming. During the storm, the loss of power along with parish and emergency services should be expected. All losses of power should be reported to 1-800-ENTERGY.

Also, public schools in St. Charles Parish have been cancelled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Sandbag locations are currently being stocked, and residents are encouraged to prepare their homes for hurricane conditions.

Please stay tuned to Cox Government Access Channel 6 and the St. Charles Parish website for additional information.
