Plaquemines Parish authorities are telling all residents of the Eastbank and areas outside the levee protection system to evacuate as Nate is expected to cross over the lower part of the parish tomorrow, possibly as a Category 1 or 2 hurricane.

The parish is also calling for voluntary evacuations west of the river for areas south of the Oakville Floodgate through Venice.

The parish has opened a shelter at Belle Chasse Auditorium.
