The St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Department will continue to patrol the area to ensure the safety of all residents. Residents please be aware of the possible increase of wildlife in the area. PLEASE BE ADVISED THE MANDATORY EVACUATION ORDER WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR ALL LIVESTOCK AND FOR RESIDENTS LIVING ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE LEVEE.
