2:30 p.m. Afternoon Update

Updated measurements of the sinkhole site have not been available because the direct site is remains prohibited. Civil Air Patrol has been contracted to flyover and provide aerial photographs that can be compared to the photographs they supplied on August 10, 2012. As soon as we have those, we will be able to provide the public with  updated measurements and side by side comparisons.

Tomorrow evening, there will be a mass in honor of the residents of Grand Bayou & Bayou Corne who have been evacuated from their homes. The mass is at 6:00 p.m. at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Pierre Part. A meal is being served in the Church Hall for those who’ve been displaced as well as those who may be hosting any evacuees in their home. If you plan to attend the supper and have not RSVP’d to the church, you can do so by calling (985) 252-6008.

Evacuee Assistance checks will be distributed by Worley Catastrophe Response at the St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church Hall on tomorrow from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
