Monday – fall continues

updated at 1:45 Monday, March 14

Lake D’Arbonne continues a steady fall. The USGS chart is up and running again this morning. As of 12:45 p.m. Monday the lake is at 85 feet. The crest was on Saturday at 89.89.

The USGS information has been an invaluable tool during this flooding, first by predicting the amazing rise and now by letting us keep up with the fall. Be safe out there and don’t take chances during the cleanup. Sadly, one man in Natchitoches Parish has already drowned trying to save property from a flooded house.

Here’s THE LATEST look at Lake D’Arbonne:

IMPORTANT **** IMPORTANT ***** IMPORTANT

Anyone in Union Parish who has been affected by the floodwaters with water in their homes, it is extremely important that you register with FEMA. The FEMA website is www.disasterassistance.gov or by phone at 1-800-621-3362. Once Union is declared a federal disaster area, Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams will arrive in our area to further assist. So please register as soon as possible.

THIS IS TRUE EVEN IF THE PROPERTY IS INSURED OR NOT.  REPORT IT TO HELP GIVE FEMA THE WHOLE STORY OF WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE IN UNION PARISH. EVEN IF YOU DON’T WANT HELP OR EXPECT HELP, YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS ARE COUNTING ON YOU.
