BENTON — Officials in northwest Louisiana say people should hold onto their sandbags, because Tropical Depression Bill’s rains will again overwhelm the Red River.

Bossier Parish sheriff’s spokesman Bill Davis says the National Weather Service told parish officials Thursday that the parish got more than two to three inches, and upstream communities also got lots of rain.

Davis says sandbags remain available at four locations around the parish.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator encouraged residents affected by the river flooding to keep sandbags in place and reconsider moving forward with home repairs until the current weather system dissipates.
