GRAND ISLE, LA (WVUE) - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has suspended tolls on Louisiana Highway 1, according to a statement released by the department.

A statement from Mayor David Camardelle's office said high tides in the range four to seven feet are predicted.

Officials urged residents with vehicles, boats or campers in low areas they should bring them to higher areas until this storm passes.

Camardelle said all pumps are up and running and back up pumps are on standby.
