Pierre Part, La (NBC33) — In Assumption parish, water is rising, and so is the "fear level" among residents near Pierre Part.
We caught up with crews this afternoon who were out filling up, and handing out sandbags to residents worried about flooding in their community.
Law enforcement officials have put a "no-wake" zone in effect for all area waterways.
"What scares us is the Mississippi traffic, the big ships coming in. If they bump that levee, that's it, we're doomed," said resident Robin Brock.
