PHOTO RELEASE: Closing the back levee breach in Plaquemines Parish

BATON ROUGE -- Louisiana National Guard helicopters continue to drop 3,000-pound sandbags to stabilize a breach in a Plaquemines Parish back levee near the Braithwaite and Scarsdale communities.

Carrying two jumbo sandbags at a time, the helicopters are dropping up to 740 bags into the approximately 230-foot breach on the east side of the parish. Residents of Plaquemines Parish were hard hit by storm surge that washed over the parish during Hurricane Isaac.
