2nd round of Red River flooding likely to be less severe
SHREVEPORT - The National Weather Service says the Red River will flood again in northwest Louisiana over the July 4 weekend, but it won't be as bad as floods earlier this month. Hydrologist C.S. Ross says the crest moving downriver from Texas is 3 to 5 feet lower than the earlier one.
He says a dozen homes and some mobile homes and RVs may flood again in Caddo Parish, where federal surveys from June floods found 69 private buildings flooded, including 42 destroyed or with major damage.
Caddo and Bossier parish officials say anyone whose property flooded this month should take precautions.
Thousands of acres of farmland are likely to flood again.
Natchitoches Parish officials say the Natchitoches Alligator Park will, too. The park's Facebook page says it may reopen Thursday or Friday.
