Curtis Elementary, Haughton Middle, Legacy Elementary, Parkway, Plain Dealing, and Princeton.

Caddo Leaders sent out this statement:

What Else Is Closed?

Also closed are Evangel and Linwood. Caddo Parish Headstart and the Caddo Community Action Agency are closed. Also all Shreve Memorial Library branches are closed.

More than 40,000 Swepco customers lost power in Caddo Parish while about 12,000 customers lost power in Bossier Parish.

The Shreveport Volunteer Network rolled out to help clear roads all around northwest Louisiana where trees fell across roadways or left folks in jeopardy. The organizers say "trees are down all around the city."

Throughout the night, the Caddo 911 emergency call site had dozens of listings of road hazards with trees down all across the community. The cleanup work is expected to take several hours.
