SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Heavy rains flooded some Shreveport streets and roadways Tuesday afternoon.

High water has been reported on several area roads in the Cedar Grove, Highland and Caddo Heights areas of Shreveport, including Dalzell St., Wichita St., Sheridan, Southern, Fern and Line Avenues. There are numerous reports of stalled cars.

There are also reports of flooding along N. Market Street in North Shreveport, and at the Kingston Village Apartments in Southern Hills, and along E. Bert Kouns (LA 526). Traffic is reportedly backed up on 3132 as a result.

The waters tend to recede as quickly as they rise, but some streets could be temporarily blocked off. Drivers are urged to use caution, and never drive through areas where the roadway can't be seen underneath the water.
