Flood water receding from Bossier City homes
BOSSIER CITY - The water has started to recede from the flooded subdivisions in Bossier City in northern Louisiana.
National Weather Service forecaster C.S. Ross in Shreveport says it will take at least a week before home owners will be able to get back to their homes and assess the damage.
In the eastern part of Bossier Parish near Haughton, Ross says the water should drain from the Tall Timbers subdivision by Monday afternoon.
A six-mile section of U.S. Highway 71 from Bossier Parish into Red River Parish is flooded.
Ross says Red Chute Bayou on the east side of Bossier City did not top the levee as feared. He says there was some seepage, but not enough to reach 3,500 homes.
