Gov. Edwards to tour northern La. flood damage Friday
BOSSIER CITY- Governor John Bel Edwards is making a trip to survey the damage left behind by massive flooding in northern Louisiana.
A spokesperson for the Edwards administration says the governor plans to visit Shreveport, Bossier City and a shelter in Monroe on Friday, weather permitting.
Weather officials near Monroe say the region has received more than 18 inches of rain since Tuesday. State officials say three people have died in connection to the severe weather.
Governor Edwards declared a state-wide state of emergency Thursday night due to the heavy rain that's projected to continue through the weekend.
Evacuations have been ordered for multiple subdivisions in Bossier Parish. According to Bossier Parish Sheriff's Lt. Bill Davis, the Red Chute Bayou is still rising and is likely to spill over the levees by Friday morning.
