BATON ROUGE - Parish leaders in East Baton Rouge said they were preparing for a number of issues as tropical storm Isaac approaches Louisiana and is expected to impact the city-parish.

Mayor-President Kip Holden said the parish school system canceled classes for the next two days, but city workers were still expected to be at work Tuesday.  Holden said they were going to review that later this evening, and could change that decision then if new information about Isaac warranted it.

Police Chief Dewayne White said uniform patrol officers would be out 24 hours a day, and a curfew could be put in place if needed.  He said they would specifically be keeping an eye out for potential burglars, watching out for people who were in places they weren't supposed to be.

If a curfew is ordered, businesses can get placards for employees who have to travel to work during curfew times.  Businesses can register for those at RedStickReady.com.

Residents in the parish can also call 311 for a variety of services, including help with pets and information about roads.
