False River could be reopened soon
NEW ROADS - Authorities said Wednesday they hope to reopen the swollen False River in Pointe Coupee Parish before this weekend, depending on how much water levels decrease.
The river is currently closed and at 17.5 feet, and still a threat to homes and properties on the river according to emergency officials.
Jim Bello, the parish administrator, said they hope to have the river open Thursday.
People with questions should call the parish police jury at (225) 638-9556.
