Catahoula Parish recovers from flooding

JONESVILLE — Parts of Catahoula Parish are still drying out after Tuesday night’s rains caused flooded houses and streets in the Jonesville area.

The Alexandria chapter of the American Red Cross has provided clean-up supplies to a few Catahoula residents, and received reports that up to 30 houses had at least some water damage, Director of Operations Rick Boykin said.

“We’ve had a few calls (for assistance) today, but we’ve not done a major response,” Boykin said. “We didn’t open any shelters.”

Catahoula Parish Road Supervisor John Bass said his crews were still working to repair culverts and drains that overflowed and in some cases washed out Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

The area reportedly received between 9 and 11 inches of rain overnight.

“When we get that amount of rain in that short amount of time, you’ll have a lot of work to do,” Bass said.

“The roads are pretty drivable now, but we need a lot of new pipe because our old pipe blew out.”

Bass said flooding was worse inside Jonesville than it was in the parish.
