VERMILION PARISH (VPSO): Late yesterday and during the night hours, the storm surge caused flooding in the lower areas of eastern Vermilion parish.

TEAM-VPSO RESCUE was on High Alert Ready Status throughout the night and made a rescue in the Intracoastal city area.

Today, we have deployed our 5-ton rescue teams to Erath and Delcambre with other rescue equipment and personnel on HIGH ALERT READY STATUS.

We are asking the motoring public to limit travel to an absolute need to basis. Flooded roadways are often deeper than perceived and lots of times result in a stalled vehicle needing rescue.

When deciding whether or not to attempt to navigate a flooded roadway, this phrase can be usefull: WHEN IN DOUBT, “TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN”. Please keep residents in mind and do NOT allow your vehicle to cause wakes.

We will have another weather update after the 10:30 briefing from the national weather service

YOUR TEAM-TEAM-VPSO is out in full force today. May God be with them, and all of our keeping them and everyone safe. Sheriff Michael A. Couvillon.

Call 911 for emergencies.
