Louisiana transport officials say they are picking up Aqua Dams located near Bayou Sorrel after the heavy rains last month.
In a tweet on Friday, the Louisiana Department of Transportation Development shared a photo showing a large rubber tube being rolled up.

Heavy rains struck parts of southern Louisiana in mid-May, and Iberville Parish authorities began refraining from water from the Intracoastal Waterways. On May 21, a portion of the portable dam collapsed, evacuating more than 1,300 people living in flash flood trails in parts of Bay Sorel and Bay Pigeon. The crew eventually rang the dam again to end the threat.
