ATCHAFALAYA BASIN, La (FOX44) - As the water keeps moving toward places like Melville and Morgan City - the Louisiana State Police is keeping an eye on things - from the sky.

The State Police are up in a helicopter every day over the Morganza spillway and points south.

While police track the movement of the water - they make sure everyone - and everything is out of harm's way.

Police say places that used to be bone dry - are now covered in 5, even 10 feet of water.
