ST. JAMES PARISH - St. James Parish authorities are asking for volunteers to fill sandbags at seven locations around the parish.

While some parts of Louisiana are starting to enter a recovery mode, others downstream are preparing for more flooding.

St. James Parish authorities say in an update on the sheriff's office website that there were no evacuations or shelters as of Tuesday morning.

The message also says people who need sandbags are encouraged to bring their own shovels and bag their own sand.
