Grand Isle, La. - The death of one person and the physical battle three others face because of flesh-eating bacteria have some people reconsidering their holiday weekend plans to swim in the salt and brackish waters of south Louisiana.
The Department of Health and Hospitals conducts tests at 25 state beaches, and has issued advisories at 14 of them, but none has to do with the flesh eating bacteria.' Those 14 beaches have been closed for other reasons, but Vibrio, can strike anywhere along the coast, with cases so far, coming from across the state, including New Orleans, Thibodaux, Baton Rouge, and Lake Charles.

Wow, I always remember Houma/ Grey Bayou being bigger we used to head there every weekend to see a movie at the mall, what about Chackbay that was still pretty backwoods when I was out there? I imagine that has fallen apart also.
