Officials in Bossier City asked residents near the Red Chute Bayou levee to leave their homes Sunday, as water topped the levee and a breach seemed possible.  Emergency officials spent the weekend fortifying weak spots in the levee.

A shelter is open at a nearby school.

Gov. Bobby Jindal took a helicopter tour of the area Sunday. Jindal said he would ask for federal help for the flood and storm victims.

More than 1,600 homes and 4,200 residents were in the potential flood area.
