Coast Guard officials surveyed some of the damage left by Hurricane Barry today.

Rear Adm. Paul Thomas, commander of the Eighth Coast Guard District, Master Chief Petty Officer Heath Jones, command master chief, Eighth Coast Guard District, and Petty Officer 1st Class Adam McNeil, an aviation maintenance technician at Coast Guard Aviation Training Center Mobile, surveyed the impact of Hurricane Barry along the Mississippi River near Plaquemines Parish on Monday.

Early preparation and communication between federal, state, local and industry partners helped minimize the potential for damage, Coast Guard officials say.

Here are some pictures from their trip:
