MORGAN CITY - Flood-fighting efforts in Terrebonne Parish are getting some help from eastern Louisiana.

The parish has accepted an offer of assistance from Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, according to his office.

The parish was sent trailers with flood tubes, pumps and generators, as well as several loads of sandbags.

"We stand by our neighbors and are ready to help with crews, supplies, or equipment," said Nungesser. "We're monitoring our levees in Plaquemines and don't anticipate any major issues right now, but we're offering help to those areas that may be impacted."

Terrebonne Parish is expected to see up to several feet of flooding because of the opening of the Morganza Spillway today, according to inundation maps put out by the Corps of Engineers.
