West bank of parish needs quick attention
Our View - Mar 16, 2006
Residents of the west bank of St. Charles Parish can take solace in the fact that there is still some acreage left between its southernmost subdivisions and the Gulf of Mexico. But this stretch of deteriorating wetlands is all that stands between their inundation when a hurricane comes.
If a category 3 to 5 hurricane hits in the right spot, it could turn the area into another St. Bernard Parish. That has made Parish President Albert Laque very concerned about the lack of attention to our potential predicament by the powers that be in the federal government.
