The mandatory evacuation is necessary due to the overtopping of the Lower Dularge East Levee. The levee was overtopped as Tropical Storm Barry made landfall on Saturday around 1 p.m.
Evacuees may shelter at the Houma Municipal Auditorium at 880 Verret Street in Houma, but should bring sufficient food, water, bedding, baby formula and supplies to last 3 days.
If transportation to Houma Municipal Auditorium is required, please call (985) 873-6357 to arrange pick-up. Household pets brought to the Auditorium will be registered with the Terrebonne Parish Animal Shelter and kept there until reunited with owners.
