Residents can get sandbags


With rains settling in on the area, Bossier Parish residents who believe a little extra precaution from potential flooding is warranted will be able to find support from the parish police jury highway department.

Sandbags will be available 24-hours a day beginning Friday at the Bossier Parish highway department maintenance facility at 410 Mayfield St. in Benton. Parish crews will be on hand to assist residents with loading the bags.

Parish officials will re-evaluate the situation at noon Saturday to determine if the maintenance facility needs to remain open.
