A voluntary evacuation order for parts of St. Amant, Acy and Sorrento will be lifted at midnight, Sept. 1, officials said.

Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez rescinded the order after drainage crews and members of the Ascension Parish Unified Command monitored water levels at the Amite River at Port Vincent, and at the Marvin Braud Pump Station.

At this time, there are no infrastructure failures, and all pumps are operational, officials said.
