WASHINGTON - This morning, leading national environmental organizations delivered nearly 200,000 petition signatures to the Obama Administration to call for the cancelation of today’s fossil fuel auction in the Gulf in the wake of unprecedented flooding in central and southwestern Louisiana.

The devastating flooding is among the most severe weather disasters since Hurricane Sandy. Across the region, tens of thousands of people have been evacuated, thousands of homes damaged, and at least eleven people killed.
