LIVINGSTON - Residents in lower portions of Livingston Parish continued to fight flooding after Hurricane Isaac today, while emergency officials asked for donations to help them out.

Residents helped neighbors and family get themselves and as much as they could out of homes and buildings full of standing water.

Firefighters and other agencies provided boats to help get people out of the affected areas.

The parish fire department and office of Homeland Security asked people to donate clothes and money to help provide evacuees with necessities like food and water. Officials set up a point of distribution for evacuees at the Maurepas fire station on Highway 22.

News 2's Mike Steele went into the evacuated areas, and will have more on relief efforts tonight at 5 and 6.
