CADDO PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Water has been restored to most of Shreveport, except for a few isolated areas, according to the Caddo Office of Homeland Security.
According to an update Wednesday afternoon from the Caddo Parish OHSEP, which is operated by the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, it is now critically important to find out who still does not have water. The city is asking those still without water to text “NO WATER” to (318) 383-2658.
Parish emergency management officials say hospitals have sufficient pressure to operate and the Water Department will be increasing the pressure to them throughout the day.
The Water Department is preparing to take water samples and hope to lift the boil advisory by Saturday, but customers are still being asked to conserve water.
Residents are also being asked to submit winter storm damage information to the state at DAMAGE.LA.GOV. This information will be submitted to FEMA to assess potential aid for our area.
