Where Can You Get Sand Bags?
Water is beginning to rise in several spots around town. The Caddo Sheriff's Office has closed the Keithville Kingston road because of high water.
If water is rising near your house and you need sandbags, they are now available at several locations around town.
Sandbags are available for city residents at 3825 Mansfield Road. They will be open from 7:30 am to 4:00pm. If the rain continues, they will stay open longer.
At this time, Bossier has not confirmed whether or not sandbags are available to residents. However, in past situations similar to this, residents can get sandbags at the City's Public Service Complex at 3223 Old Shed Rd.
The Bossier Parish Hwy Dept says they have plenty sand bags available for the residents...they will be open until 3:30 pm
If you've never used sandbags to protect your property before, Caddo Parish has an extremely useful and detailed instruction manual that you can find here.
