ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Ascension Parish officials provided updated information on the flooding situation at noon Monday.
They said close to 50,000 sandbags have been picked up by residents. Sand and bags are still available at all locations around the parish.
Leaders are assessing the damage caused by the flooding. Area rivers have crested or will crest later Monday, so emergency officials don't anticipate water levels to get too much higher.
