1949

Bossier Parish emergency management officials are seeking information on any damage to property caused in March by historic flooding in the parish.

Ian Snellgrove, director of the Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said residents should begin immediately documenting damage with photographs, receipts for materials and any paperwork that reflects damage.

“If there’s damage to home, automobile, business or agriculture from the flooding, we urge individuals to contact us as soon as possible,” Snellgrove said.

Persons should report damage daily, if possible, to the BOHSEP at 425-5351 from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

“This data helps governmental leaders gather the scope of the impact on the community,” Snellgrove said.
