Areas of North Baton Rouge experienced rising water Wednesday night
BATON ROUGE - Concerned about the possibility of becoming trapped in rising water, people called police reporting high water in areas around the airport late Wednesday.
Police said they received reports of high water along Scenic Highway and Harding Boulevard around 9 p.m. Wednesday. A police spokesperson said as of 9:30 p.m., no rescues had been made. Though, high-water vehicles were being dispatched.
It seemed people were mostly worried about not being able to leave if the water continued to rise. The situation was described as an evacuation, not a rescue.
The calls were made shortly after the area received four inches of rain.
