Emergency Declaration Issued – Rick Nowlin


The attached declaration was issued yesterday.  In addition to the stated problems resulting from the storm, we are receiving reports that a large number of parish residents may be without electrical service for the next 3 to 4 days.  Parish highway crews were called out Sunday evening as soon as the storm hit and worked all night and much of Memorial Day to clear roads of fallen trees.

Anyone wishing to report a blocked road or other hazard should call the Parish at the courthouse number (318-352-2714) to report the problem.  The highway department office does not have electric service at this time.

  1. And this means what for the typical citizen out in the affected areas?

    Also, I’m not sure how much Section 3 is going to help us. LOL
