Flash Flood Watch; Sand and Sandbags Available in Castor and Saline

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for our region until Thursday morning, but rain is predicted until Friday evening.  The National Weather Service warned “NEVER drive through flooded roadways – you do not know the condition of the road under the water. Turn Around Don’t Drown.”

Yesterday, in anticipation of heavy rain, the parish Police Jury delivered sand and sand bags to two locations in the southern part of the parish.

  • Castor school ( just inside gate at new gym on left side)
  • Beside the fire station in Saline.

According to District 6 Police Juror Michael Nelson, “You will need to bring a shovel to fill them.”
