Storm Damage

Posted: Jun 15, 2023, 7:50 PM

A line of severe thunderstorms roared through north Bossier Parish Wednesday leaving downed trees and power lines in its wake, and causing damage to private property in some areas. No injuries were reported.

High winds and heavy rainfall accompanied the fast-moving front, with high water covering some parish roads in the northern part of the parish.

Bossier Parish Police Jury highway department crews worked into the evening hours Wednesday clearing downed trees from roadways and cleaning debris left by the storm. Crews continued cleanup operations Thursday.

While damage from the storm was widespread, parish officials said most occurred north of Plain Dealing along LA Hwy. 3 and connecting parish roads. SWEPCO crews reportedly continue to work to restore power to many residents in the rural areas.
