ASCENSION PARISH - The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office announced Sunday that a closure of the gate at Marvin Braud Pumping Station took place that evening at 7 p.m.

Following the closure, the Pumping Station began drawing down the water in parish waterways.

The Sheriff's Office announcement, which was posted on its Facebook page, also noted that Sorrento had already been pumped down, and the pumping stations there and at Henderson Bayou were being monitored.
Officials confirmed these decisions were made as a result of current weather forecasts related to Tropical Storm Sally, and are subject to change based on any updates in future weather developments.
