LAFOURCHE PARISH, La. - Rumors and media reports that a levee breached today in the Kraemer community are untrue.

'There was no levee breach, there was no levee break, and there was no evacuation,' Logan Banks, Lafourche Parish government spokesman said this evening.

Banks said workers, residents and National Guardsman did work Thursday night using sandbags to shore up the levee along Bayou Boeuf, but it never posed any major threat.

The Courier and Daily Comet never reported the levee breach, but some New Orleans media did.
