The series of massive storms that passed through our neck of the woods early this morning (Tuesday, April 9) night left a pretty wide swath of downed trees and power line issues behind it.

SWEPCO's outage map shows that the hardest hit areas were in south Caddo Parish, including South Shreveport and the Keithville area.

The Longview, Texas area was also hit especially hard along with a number of customers in the Marshall, Texas area.

More Bad Weather Is On The Way

In a statement from the National Weather Service in Shreveport, we see:

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to impact the entire Four State Region Today through tonight. Excessive, heavy rainfall could result in additional flooding concerns with low lying and poor drainage areas becoming especially susceptible. Strong to severe thunderstorms will also be possible through tonight, especially across the southern half of Northeast Texas into Northern Louisiana where large hail, damaging wind gusts and an isolated tornado threat will exist.

Along with the threat of this weather, the NWS has listed our area as having a Threat Level of 3 of 4 for possible flash flooding, so those in low-lying areas are certainly at a greater risk of potential floods and loss of power during this period.
