The town is currently cutoff to vehicle traffic due to damage sustained to the swing bridge from Hurricane Ida.

Louisiana National Guardsmen and Guardsmen from across the country have been working in the state since Ida made landfall.

The teams have taken part in rescue operations, debris removal, and the distribution of supplies to impacted residents among other jobs.
