Sheriff Says Storm “Could Go Straight Through Shreveport”

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says Tropical Storm Harvey is headed in our direction. The Sheriff says the storm “could go straight through Shreveport”. The Sheriff says right now, forecasters are projecting we will get 4 to 6 inches of rain over the next five days.

He says the shelter at the old Sams Club store on Jewella is on standby to be used in case it is needed. He also says 8 prisoners from the Caddo Correction Center are being used to help fill sandbags which are being given out on Monty Street in North Shreveport and on Mansfield Road for Shreveport residents.
