LIVINGSTON - There will be a curfew again Monday night for Livingston Parish.

The curfew will be in effect from dusk Monday evening until dawn Tuesday for areas still dealing with flooding issues. The curfew will be strongly enforced, the sheriff's office warned in a statement Monday afternoon.

Large swaths of the parish have experienced flooding since Friday when severe thunderstorms dumped nearly 14 inches of rain in the region. Flooding has been experienced along area rivers, bayous and creeks.

Also Monday, the sheriff's office posted a series of videos on Facebook showing what the situation looked like from the air. The sheriff's office helicopter flew over S. Satsuma and Hood roads as well as Highway 22 through Chinquapin.
