State offices close in Cameron, Calcasieu Parishes

State offices in Cameron and Calcasieu parishes were closed Thursday as Hurricane Ike moved through the Gulf of Mexico.

Louisiana officials say storm surge gates have been closed at Bayou Bienvenue in St. Bernard Parish, the Harvey Canal on the West Bank of Jefferson Parish, Bayou Lafourche in Golden Meadow, Bayou Little Caillou in Terrebonne Parish and Bayou Terrebonne in Terrebonne Parish.

Hurricane Ike is still on course for a projected south Texas landfall, but other areas of the Gulf Coast are still on alert.
