Central officials appeal flood zone designation

Tonight on 9News at 5:  Several lanes of I-12 were closed for an hour this afternoon when a truck crossed the median wall and knocked over two light poles.  WAFB's Kiran Chawla will have a live report tonight at 5.

Engineers examining flood maps for the Beaver Bayou area discovered a large section in a flood zone that doesn't need to be included.  Central officials are appealing to FEMA.  If the appeal is successful, thousands of people who currently pay flood insurance would be affected.  WAFB's Kelsey Davis will have more tonight on 9News at 6.
