Red River Cresting

The Red River at Alexandria is at flood stage and is forecast to crest this weekend.  Several families are flooded in areas that flood historically, like Rigollete Bayou and the Buhlow recreation complex.  Unless you're local, it's hard to envision, but our local news folks took a helicopter ride.

The hydrology page for the Red at Alexandria is here.  The page is updated daily, but it appears that the crest is now expected on Sunday.
