IBERVILLE PARISH - On Wednesday morning, Iberville Parish leaders say levels in Bayou Manchac have dropped enough to open all three flood gates to drain the Spanish Lake basin.

Officials say all three flood gates are open now and residents in Prairieville, St. Gabriel and Geismar should begin to start noticing relief over the next 24 hours.
