Flooding in north Louisiana remains a concern as a stubborn storm system dropped several inches of rain this weekend. National Weather Service hydrologist C.S. Ross says they are concerned about flooding on the Red River for the next several days.

The Ouachita River is also expected to crest in Monroe later this week as well as nearby bayous and rivers. Areas in central Louisiana are also expected to get hit with high water as well further downstream on the lower Red River. Ross says there isn’t a break from the rainy conditions.

Ross says if the predictions hold true, several roads will be impacted as the Red hits flood stage.

The Red River is expected to rise to 39 feet at Shreveport by Wednesday, six feet above flood stage.
