WILLOWDALE 'LEVEE OVERTOPPING': The berm levee surrounding Luling's Willowdale subdivision has been rumored to be overtopping. While the marsh to the south of the subdivision is holding higher than normal water, the berm levee has not overtopped. Public Works is monitoring the situation closely and is initiating flood fighting measures to protect homes in the area.
RE-EVACUATION: The parish has not called for any additional evacuations. The parish remains under the original mandatory evacuation order called at 6 p.m. Sunday.
ST. ROSE 'FLOOD GATES': We have been asked about 'flood gates' being opened in Destrehan to 'relieve pressure.' Apparently this rumor refers to the sandbags placed across Airline Highway at the St. Charles / Jefferson Parish line. There is no flood threat on either side of the sandbags, and no plans that we are aware of to remove the bags until after the storm threat passes.
