An East Bank levee is being topped due to rising waters in the aftermath of Gustav. An urgent plea is going out to all residents in the area to leave now!
The levee is near the St. Bernard Parish line and is a private levee (not part of the federal levee system) known as the Caernarvon Diversion Levee.
