Riley Hopes to Get Bayou Boats Back in Water
By Alabama Public Radio
Bayou La Batre, AL – Governor Bob Riley and Coast Guard Vice Admiral Thad Allen met Friday to discuss how to get Bayou La Batre back in business. Hurricane Katrina's flood waters devastated the fishing community of 25-hundred people on August 29th. Now, Riley says getting the boats back to work is the top priority. All of the seafood processing plants in the Bayou remain closed. With help from FEMA, some could open in a matter of weeks.
