Because of the unexpected Flash Flooding which occurred yesterday in Stephensville/Belle River, Parish Government employees will distribute pre-filled sandbags from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., beginning April 6, 2019, through April 7, 2019. The bags will be distributed at Stephensville Park.

Over 4 ½ inches of torrential rain fell within a matter of hours yesterday. This event coupled with the existing high-water problems have resulted in street flooding. Great care should be exercised by motorists on those roads which have not been closed.
