Much of St. Amant remains flooded

ST. AMANT - Getting to St. Amant requires a very roundabout route, running into road blocks in several spots.

Apparently took on several feet of water.

We are near the New River which feeds into the Amite River, which is still swollen. Water seems to be receding, but predicting when this area will be completely dried out is difficult.

Nearly the entire community has flooded.

Some in Ascension Parish have already started gutting their homes and begin the cleanup process.
