Slidell police say Mayor Freddy Drennan has called a dusk-to-dawn curfew for Hurricane Isaac.
Assistant Chief Kevin Foltz says it probably will be lifted at daylight Thursday.
It won't apply to emergency workers. Foltz says the curfew is designed to keep the roads clear for emergency crews, to protect city residents and to make it easier for police to protect their property.
A Slidell man thought he was lucky when he won more than $1,800 on the Louisiana Lotto on July 4. But, 29-year-old Evan Bauer was even luckier three days later when he became a millionaire.
The Times-Picayune reports Bauer matched all six Lotto numbers to win Saturday's $1.7 million jackpot — the state's largest since 2009. After federal and state taxes were withheld, officials said Thursday he received a $1.2 million prize.
The winning numbers were: 3, 6, 9, 10, 14 and 25. His advice: "Pick your numbers and stick to them. Eventually, it will pay off!"
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a pilot flying a Cessna across the Gulf of Mexico stopped responding to radio calls including those from two F-15 aviators who flew alongside and monitored the plane for hours before it crashed into the water. A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says the plane was headed from Slidell, La., to Sarasota, Fla.
