Springfield residents using airboats to get around
SPRINGFIELD - Some people in the town of Springfield in lower Livingston Parish have resorted to using airboats to check on family and neighbors.
Robert Wilson and other residents are hopeful that the flood water will recede soon.
"I'm worried but what can you do? The water is still coming up a little bit," he said Monday.
Dozens of homes are flooded in the Springfield area near the Blood River. The river was swift under a bridge on Blood River Road. Water appeared to be inches from the bridge deck.
"It's an act of God, but there ain't really nothing you can do about it. Just gotta go with the flow, you know," Wilson said. "Hopefully the water starts going down, 'cause all we can do is put our hands together and pray to the good lord and thank God. It's in His hands."
