Episode Narrative A line of showers and thunderstorms that repeatedly moved across areas of southeast Texas and western Louisiana from the evenings hours on October 29th into the morning hours of October 30th caused considerable flash flooding across Beauregard and Vernon Parishes. Flooding from the heavy rainfall continued throughout the day on October 30th and lasted into the morning hours on October 31st.
Event Narrative Vernon Parish Emergency Management, the Vernon Parish Sheriff Office, and the public all reported widespread flooding of roadways across central Vernon Parish due to persistant moderate to heavy rainfall that began late on October 29th and continued into October 30th. Many streets across Leesville had a half foot of water on them. Several cars stalled in the high water on Highway 171 in Leesville and on Jean Chapel Road near Fort Polk. Many roadways across the area were closed for much of the day on October 30th.
