"So, we've had quite a bit of flash flooding here across the central and southern parts of the Shreveport and, possibly, Bossier City areas."
There have been reports of flash flooding across north Louisiana this morning. Hansford says the storms are moving to the east along and south of I-20. He says there have been reports of up to 5 inches of rain already in the Monroe area.
"We've also have had reports in excess of seven-and-a-quarter inches just northwest of Columbia in Caldwell Parish."
He says sandbagging operations have been put in place in Columbia. Hansford says these rains could last into the afternoon and dump a significant amount of additional rain across north Louisiana.
"Easily of two to four inches with even higher isolated amounts will be possible, especially south of, say, a line from Mansfield, Coushatta over towards Columbia, Louisiana.
