High water closes several roads in Ascension Parish

PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) - Several roads in Ascension Parish are closed because of high water.

Storms passed through the area over the weekend and dumped heavy rains.

Standing water persists over sections of roads along Bayou Manchac and the Amite River from the rain.

Fortunately, the water levels are falling along the Amite, with most of the river cresting Monday.
