Levee in Louisiana May be Intentionally Breached
At a news conference in Baton Rouge, Jindal said there’s no estimate on when that might occur. He says as many as 40 people are reportedly in need of rescue in the area.
He says Plaquemines Parish has ordered a mandatory evacuation for the west bank below Belle Chasse.
Officials say the evacuation was ordered out of concern that more storm surge from Isaac would be pushed into the area and levees might be overtopped.
