Statement as of 7:56 PM CDT on July 23, 2014

Expires 11:45 PM EDT on July 23, 2014


The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued an

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
Caldwell Parish in north central Louisiana...
this includes the city of Columbia...

* until 1045 PM CDT

* at 756 PM CDT... National Weather Service meteorologists detected
thunderstorms with heavy rainfall that continued to redevelop and
drift southwest over much of Caldwell Parish. Dopplar radar
estimates that an inch and a half to near three inches of rain has
fallen near Columbia... with additional heavy rainfall expected to
affect the area over the next couple of hours. This may result in
minor flooding of low lying... poor drainage areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Additional rainfall amounts of one to in excess of two inches are
possible in the warned area through 1045 PM.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on
small creeks and streams... and ponding of water on country roads and
farmland along the banks of creeks and streams.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
