Flood waters are still covering a good portion of the area. One of the hardest hit areas is South Bossier Parish, and now the American Red Cross is sending teams to the parish to assess damage.

In a press release from the Bossier Parish Police Jury, Pat Culverhouse writes:

First responders in Bossier Parish are joining the volunteer group, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), currently operating an emergency assistance point in Koran to host an American Red Cross case worker assistance team to aid flood victims in the Lake Bistineau and south Bossier area.

 

Red Cross case worker team members will be at the Anna P. Tooke Memorial library Saturday, March 26 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

 

Residents are urged to bring some form of identification that shows the address where they were living at the time of the flood. Case workers will assist residents on a case-by-case basis with an assessment of needs and development of an individual recovery plan.

 

Red Cross health service volunteers will also be on hand Saturday to evaluate the physical and mental health of flood victims. All health service volunteers are licensed professionals.
