Advocate staff report

Commissioner of Agriculture Bob Odom, a licensed pilot, flew over portions of southeastern Louisiana today and said "there is a lot of water, a lot of damage."
"St. Bernard is totally underwater," Odom said. "It is over the rooftops. I didn't see a lot of houses in St. Bernard."

He said he is really concerned about the stagnant water, sewage and other contamination, and possible diseases.

Odom also said that Interstate 10 between Slidell and New Orleans is "destroyed." He said part of it was skewed, and another section was totally out. Both sides are damaged, he said.

He said he didn't see any animals at all - dead or alive. There were about 150,000 head of cattle in the flooded area, and he knew owners were trying to get them out.
