Buses Delayed

The East Baton Rouge School System says due to the line of heavy thunderstorms that moved through the Baton Rouge area today, there are delays in transporting students from schools to their final destination.

Officials say schools in the northern part of the parish can expect heavy delays due to downed trees and power lines in that area, while schools elsewhere can expect moderate delays due to heavier than normal traffic.

The school system says it has all available buses on area roads to shorten the delays as much as possible.
