UPDATE: The "No wake zone" order has been canceled by the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office.


The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office has declared that there will be a "No wake zone" for lower St. Martin Parish until further notice.

Major Ginny Higgins says the decision is being made to prevent water from going into people's homes, camps and onto their property.

The "No wake zone" affects areas of lower St. Martin Parish including the Stephensville and Belle River areas.

The St. Martin Sheriff's Office says when the "No wake zone" is lifted, they will let the public known.
