FOX 8: La. National Guard's Help Not Needed In Florida After All

(FOX 8/WVUE) The Louisiana National Guard soldiers originally scheduled to Florida to help with recovery from Hurricane Irma, have been ordered to stand down.

The 922 Engineering company was to be deployed to help with technical issues and clearing roads was told their help, while appreciated, is no longer needed after Florida officials completed a more comprehensive assessment of the damage.

More 150 Soldiers mustered to head to Lake City, Florida on Tuesday to help with the recovery.

More than 65 vehicles and equipment were set to leave from Camp Villere, in Slidell, and travel to Lake City to join the recovery response.
