Lafourche Parish President Jimmy Cantrelle said a recommended evacuation has been issued for the Pointe-Aux-Chenes community due to the overtopping of a levee in that area.

A shelter is open in Lafourche at the Raceland Recreation Center at 241 Recreation Drive.

But La. Highway 24 (Bourg-Larose) is closed in Larose, so evacuees must use U.S. Highway 90 to travel to get to the shelter.

For assistance, please contact the @LafourcheGov Office of Emergency Preparedness at 985-537-7603.
