Flood of 2016 Began One Year Ago Today
Our region was devastated by historic floods one year ago today. Neighborhoods all across Northwest Louisiana were impacted by the high water.
Cross Lake area residents were hard hit:
Three people were killed during the spring flooding, including a driver who died in Bienville Parish and two others in Ouachita Parish.
More than 35 hundred homes were evacuated.
The heavy rains began on March 8th, and didn't stop until March 12th. Some areas got as much as 20 inches of rain over the four days.
