Isaac: Officials May Intentionally Break Levee

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says coastal officials may intentionally break a levee on the east bank of flooded Plaquemines Parish to relieve pressure on the structure.

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.

Hurricane Isaac causes levee break at Guste Island near Madisonville; search and rescue under way
Published: Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 1:48 PM

"Hurricane Isaac has caused the levee to break at Port Louis/Guste Island near Madisonville, prompting St. Tammany Parish officials to start search and rescue operations in the area. In addition, search and rescue is under way in the Indian Village area south of Slidell.

Also, the water in Old Mandeville has reached Monroe Street, where 10 to 11 inches is being reported in the street. The water did not reach Monroe Street during Hurricane Katrina, said Dexter Accardo, the parish's director of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
In addition, the number of homes without power in St. Tammany Parish has climbed to more than 56,000. The parish's shelters are housing 218 people Wednesday afternoon.

Residents who find themselves in life-threatening situations should call 911. For other storm-related needs, call the Emergency Operations Center at 985.898.2323."
