Evidently we’re going to get more rain than we originally thought. Because of that, the Bossier Parish Highway Department will be offering sandbags to the public from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. today through Thursday.

Those are free and can be picked up at the highway department facilities at 410 Mayfield Street in Benton. Forecasters are predicting between 3 and 5 inches of rain in the next 24 hours.

Bossier Parish Director of Public Safety Sammy Halphen says the sandbag handouts are being done as a precautionary measure to help those who feel that a significant rain would cause their residence or business to flood.

Call the highway department for additional information: (318) 965-3752.
