Being compared to the Great Flood of 1927

Article Image Alt Text

Old time residents of LaSalle Parish are comparing the flooding along the Little River floodplain to the Great Flood of 1927. The flooding was caused by rainfall totaling from 12 to 22-inches throughout central and north Louisiana, much of which had to travel through the Little River drainage basin. No one can remember the Little River floodplain being flooded over such a wide area, and affecting so many homes, as the flood experienced during the past several days. LaSalle Homeland Security Director/ Sheriff Scott Franklin said as of press time on Monday that between 90 and 100 homes in the parish, mostly in the Little River floodplain, have been flooded by rising waters from the river.
