Bossier Parish emergency management officials are asking for information on any damage to property caused in March by historic flooding.

Ian Snellgrove, director of the Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness,recommends residents immediately start 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.

Residents are asked to report damage daily 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.

Eleven subdivisions in Bossier are under mandatory evacuation because of the historic flooding. Those subdividions include: Golden Meadows, Southgate,  Victorian Pointe, Carriage Oaks, Brookhaven, Stockwell Place, Lafayette Park, Stonebridge, Tiburon, Dogwood South and Richmond Cove.
