The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has closed Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge because of flooding in the wake of Tropical Storm Cindy.

The 76,000-acre refuge, located in eastern Cameron and western Vermilion Parishes, borders the Gulf of Mexico for 26 miles.

All public access roads and boat launches are closed until further notice, according to a press release.
