Additional mandatory evacuations ordered

Two additional subdivisions in south Bossier City and the area immediately around and adjacent to Louisiana Downs are now under a mandatory evacuation.
Golden Meadows and Southgate subdivisions (south of Robert E. Lee Blvd.) in south Bossier off of Highway 71 were added to the list of neighborhoods under a mandatory evacuation by Bossier officials Thursday evening.
The list of subdivisions in the mandatory evacuation Wednesday remains, and residents there are encouraged to evacuate.  Those subdivisions include: Victorian Pointe, Carriage Oaks, Brookhaven, Stockwell Place, Lafayette Park, Stonebridge, Tiburon, Dogwood South and Richmond Cove.
Red Chute Bayou above I-20 will continue to rise, and Bossier officials anticipate the levees will likely overtop by Friday morning.
The American Red Cross is operating a shelter at the Bossier Civic Center on Benton Road for anyone evacuating.
