Parts of Ark-La-Tex dealing with flooding

Flooding waters cover the roads in Clarence, La near Natchitoches. Many other parts of the Ark-La-Tex are cleaning up after yesterday's storms.

Severe weather continues to be the big story across the ArkLaTex today, with flash flooding and high water inundating homes and streets in several areas. In addition to school closures and power outages, the storms brought trees down into streets, cars and homes.

Also today, the National Weather Service is out assessing the damage from Tuesday's storms. They've confirmed at least three tornadoes touching down, one in Sabine Parish and another in Natchitoches. A third was also spotted in Natchitoches. We rode along with the damage assessment teams and will show you what they're looking for – and what they found on KSLA News 12 at 5:00.  StormTracker Steve also has a much improved weather forecast at 5.

Beware of a fake cancer drug there that you may want to ask your doctor about. We'll tell you about it tonight at 5.

Just a quick reminder that Domonique and I begin our March of Dimes "Run before the Walk" this Friday starting at noon at Brookshires on Line Avenue. Show up to cheer us on. You can also donate to this wonderful cause. We're running to raise awareness about how the March of Dimes improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

In your community news, Southern University-Shreveport Ag Center observes national 'Kick Butts Day' Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to speak up and take action against Big Tobacco at hundreds of events from coast to coast.

See you at 5.

Pat
