Dularge / Dulac

Anyone make it down there since the storm? How did the camps at the end of Bayou Dularge road and 4 point do? We have a camp in the marsh between the 2 closer to Dularge that I fear is gone. Haven't been able to make it out there.

Jugs took a hit but some of the camps past that didn't have any damage. My uncle's camp across from falgout marina only had some roof damage which caused a few leaks but others next to his were destroyed. I saw some areal footage from the camps on bayou decade and it was kind of the same thing, hit or miss on those too. Dulac side seems totally different, and not in a good way. They took it on the chin.

Blew the three roll up doors off the front of the camp. Blew the big roll up door on the boat slip off the camp. Blew the back wall of the boat slip out. Knocked the deck and porch off the camp. Blew some tin off the roof.

Other than that, we good.

Our old camp at 4point was still good. Most out there weren’t. New camp in southern comfort didn’t have anything but a screen missing. Some of the neighbors didn’t fair so well. Guess we lucked out.

It pretty bad down there. We are on 4pt just over the levee. I'd say 75% of the camps below the levee are total losses. We sustained roof, siding and water damage. Power is not expected to be back for at least another 2 weeks.

I also have a marsh camp on Oak Bayou. I have not yet been down there, but the reports are that all but 3 camps are not total losses: 3Bs is still there, the big green camp just south, and the Tipsy Pelican farthest south.

Odds are it is. I am sorry if so. Hoping you're still standing brother.

BIL lost just about his whole roof in Dulac, but the rest of the structure seemed okay, although wet.

I went down to check on my camp in Dularge last week. Like others have said, hit or miss.
I had a little roof damage, but nothing terrible. Have an 8x10 shed that the wind pushed about 4 feet forward on the blocks, so it definitely blew it's arse off.
Some places looked fine, others destroyed.
Been told power isn't expected down there for another 2 weeks. Poles and power lines were down everywhere.

Was told that Dulac side got hit worst than Dularge. If so, it can't be too good.
Hope everyone avoided any major damage.

Is T-Irvs still there? For that matter was it before the storm?

Got word from T Irv that he’s all good, lost the roof to his porch and some water got inside but not bad.

Hope for the best. I Had a marsh camp on the south side of moss bay. It’s not there anymore.

Yea 4 point will be a ghost town, we lost half the roof and had to gut that side. Most others were a complete loss. Our neighbor who is an old fella showed up when we're working on ours. He got there, looked at it long and hard for probably 10 minutes. Went up the stairs and got a handful of things then came back and sat on the swing for an hour or two..


Was sad.

From what I’ve seen, the people who lost their roof from zeda last year was a blessing in surprise. The new screwed on roofs added strength to the camps and gave them a fighting chance to get through the storm.

Got a podna with a camp in Moss Bay, he headed down to gut it and ended up with very minimal damage. Had 2 or 3 piece of tin come off the roof. He had some leftover pieces under the camp to replace them. All is well for him.

We just replaced the roof last fall. Hopefully that helped. Going to try to make it down there this weekend or Monday.

The family camp in Four Point is a total loss.
Dads friend had the Roach Motel. Both are completely off the pylons…. Ida was a monster to Dulac.

Anyone having any luck getting a metal roof company to come and even give a quote down there?

I was in Dulac most of the day today and can tell you it is bad. I decided to drive down to Cocodrie and then back through Chauvin into Houma on my way back.

Cocodrie is very bad.

The good news is the entire area will have a very good electrical transmission system when the crews get finished. There were LOTS of line crews working all over. We are on SLECA and they say they are to completely rebuild a substation before they can send power to Dulac.

We were very fortunate-blown out screens and some missing vinyl is all the damage. Going to take the opportunity to go all Hardiboard

I'm with you...went to our camp in cocodrie yesterday and it was 30 miles of carnage all the way down 56. The further south, the bigger the piles and the less was left of camps. My parents camp took some major roof damage and their boat lift/dock is destroyed, but there are a few camps around us where the only thing left is pilings.

When the smoke clears and the rebuilding starts, cocodrie is going to be a ghost town. The locks were already a nail in the coffin but now with a chance to make some cash back off insurance and split, I'd be surprised if more than 60% of people rebuilt. Going to be a lot of carnage left over from people simply walking away.

And to rebuild to today's standards it's just not feasible to the folks who had camps there for 50 years. But there is going to be a few folks with deep pockets setting up camps and renting them out.

The destruction from the middle school on Grand Caillou all the way down to Four Point was pretty unbelievable when I drove through a few days later. Some are better than others, but its going to be a long cleanup and recovery for the area.
