After devastating Houston, Galveston and southeast Texas with unprecedented flooding — and now 12 years to the day Katrina hit New Orleans and the Gulf Coast — the remnants of Hurricane Harvey are heading towards Bossier.
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for our area through 7 p.m. Thursday.
“Rainfall amounts will continue to increase across Deep East Texas and North Louisiana from mid to late week as Harvey accelerates northeastward across these areas,” the NWS statement said. “Additional rainfall totals of four to eight inches with isolated higher amounts closer to ten to twelve inches are possible. The threat of significant flash flooding along with isolated tornadoes, will continue to be a concern until the remnants of Harvey finally exit the region by the weekend.”
The latest reports seem to indicate that the bulk of the storm will skirt just east of Bossier, with a greater impact to northeast Louisiana.
