LOUISIANA — Tropical depression Ida is no longer a threat to Louisiana.

Governor Jindal said the state made sure they were ready just in case.

Several state agencies were on hand at a news conference yesterday where Governor Jindal updated folks on what preparations the state was making for the storm.

Several parishes were under voluntary evacuations and the Department of Transportation stopped construction projects along evacuation routes so people could get out of the storm's path.
