[ARCHIVED] Weather and High Water Watch in Bossier City


Bossier City residents are encouraged to keep an eye on the weather in the upcoming days. Possible rainfall of up to four inches is forecast through Sunday by the National Weather Service Shreveport with the heaviest rains expected Friday and Saturday. The potential for street flooding remains.

Sandbags are available at the Public Service Complex at 3223 Old Shed Road. 

In the event that street flooding occurs, do not attempt to cross barricades or drive or walk through high water. Underestimating the force and power of water can be deadly. If you come to an area that is covered with water, it is difficult to know the depth of the water or the condition of the ground beneath the water. This is especially true at night, when vision is limited. It only takes 12 to 18 inches of flowing water to carry away most vehicles including large SUVs. Six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. Whether driving or walking, any time you come to a flooded road, turn around, don't drown.
