Residents in Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes are reporting hundreds of dead fish in nearby bayous a week after Hurricane Isaac hit the area.

Scientists said such fish kills are common occurrences following storms and pose no threat to the parishes' water supplies. They say there have been thousands of dead fish in area waterways and lakes. Officials say the lack of oxygen in the water is what causes the deaths. Lafourche Parish officials say the parish's water supply is safe.
