Lafourche Parish south of the floodgates - Mandatory evacuation.
Grand Isle Mayor David Camardelle ordered a mandatory evacuation of the Jefferson Parish barrier island at 11 a.m. Friday morning.
All residents and visitors are being asked to leave Grand Isle as Tropical Storm Karen approaches. Grand Isle's Mayor says the bad weather from the storm is expected to get to the island by Friday night.
Mayor Carmardelle said LA-1, the only highway onto and off the island, is prone to flooding when storms roll in.
All camper trailers and recreational vehicles need to be removed from the island, as well.
Plaquemines Parish officials are downgrading an evacuation order from mandatory to voluntary.
Officials in Plaquemines Parish said the change would take effect at noon Saturday.
