9:30 a.m. Morning Update

The Assumption OEP is continually monitoring Tropical Storm Isaac.  A briefing at 10:00 a.m. this morning will provide advisements relative to the actions the parish is taking in preparation of the storm. As stated in last night’s press release, a state of emergency was declared as well as a voluntary evacuation of low lying areas in the parish.

Operations at Bayou Corne will stop as we await Tropical Storm Isaac. State agencies have begun to demobilize their command posts this morning. More updates will be available as the day continues.

We will continue to blog updates relative to the storm and will also post information on the Police Jury’s website at http://assumptionla.com/notices
