Louisiana Department of Wildlife and fisheries enforcement agents rescued 59 residents in North Acadia and St.Landry Parish from flooded areas today.
Agents rescued residents from Church Point, Iota and Eunice who were trapped in their vehicles and homes.
There was one medical emergency in Church Point involving a woman and two infant children who were rescued and transported to an area hospital with unknown medical conditions.
The rescues started at daylight this morning and is still ongoing. One concern for Captain Bobby Buatt is the backwater flowing from the Mermentau, Bayou Plaquemine and Bayou Queue De Tortue that could continue to flood parts of Acadiana.
