Dukes of Hazard actor's Louisiana home, studio swamped
NEW ORLEANS - Actor, writer and director John Schneider, known for his past role on the "Dukes of Hazzard" and current role on "The Haves and the Have Nots," thought the first flood he experienced at his Louisiana production studio was bad.
Now, he knows there are different levels of what's considered "bad."
Schneider's Livingston Parish-based studio - which includes his home, offices, cars, wardrobe, sound stages, and more - flooded in mid-March but the water didn't get into his 116-year-old home. This time around, he wasn't as lucky.
He says overflow from the Tickfaw River this month inundated all of his property in Holden, flooding his home with about 4 feet of water as well as another house in which his mother lives. He says he's lost a lot of memorabilia and equipment but his situation is not unique. About 90 percent of the homes in the parish were flooded.
Still he says the response by friends and strangers has been amazing.
