BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Bossier Parish officials are still offering sandbags for those who need them on Saturday, Dec. 8.

Sandbags can be picked up at the Bossier Parish Police Jury highway maintenance facility at 410 Mayfield St. in Benton.

"Parish officials determined to continue issuing the sandbags after heavy rains overnight throughout Bossier Parish sent water over roads and filled ditches," said Pat Culverhouse in an email. "Seven parish roads have high water signs warning motorists to proceed with caution."

Motorists and homeowners are urged to keep an eye on rising waters.
