Flooding Fatalities

by Christa Lollis

We have confirmation of at least one death in Sabine County. According to the weather service in Shreveport it happened in the northern end of the county near a bridge. Apparently, the driver tried to cross a water covered bridge and either ran off or was swept off the road. We're still waiting on more information.

In San Augustine there was also a fatality due to rising water.   Authorities say a man drove into high water and his car flooded.   He managed to escape safely to the roof of the car but his son did not survive.
