Grand Isle under mandatory evacuation order

Mayor David Camardelle has declared a state of emergency for the Town of Grand Isle, and has issued a mandatory evacuation order.

The statement, issued at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, was enacted due to the tropical storm watch — encompassing the entire eastern Gulf Coast — issued by the National Weather Service in advance of the approach of Tropical Storm Isaac.

The mandatory evacuation is in effect for camper trailers, recreational vehicles and tourists as of 2:00 p.m. today, and for all residents of Grand Isle as of 9:00 a.m. Monday, August 27.

Jason Saul served as WWNO's Director of Digital Services. In 2017 he took a position at BirdNote, in Seattle.
