NWS Lake Charles weather update: 230 pm Thu 4.12.18 It will be windy with scattered showers and thunderstorms starting Friday afternoon, becoming more numerous as we head through the overnight hours into Saturday morning. Some of these storms will be capable of producing a few tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds. In addition, one to four inches of rain is expected, so there will be some street flooding during periods of heavy rain as well. Several rivers continue to flood. Minor flooding is occurring on the Sabine River near Bon Wier and Deweyville, the Calcasieu River near Glenmora and Old Town Bay, and the Atchafalaya River near Morgan City. Flooding could worsen, depending on where and how much rain falls this weekend. Tides will be above normal on Friday, causing a minor coastal flooding threat. Behind the front on Sunday, strong north winds will cause tides to run below normal.

NWS Lake Charles weather update: 1100 am Fri 4.6.18 The National Weather Service is forecasting a cold front to approach our area tonight. Rain chances will be increasing later today and there is a risk for strong to severe storms tonight and early Saturday morning. Severe storms will be likely across northern Louisiana later today. This area of storms will shift south tonight across central and southern Louisiana. There is a higher likelihood of severe storms over central Louisiana and east Texas...a lesser chance further south toward the I10 corridor. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main hazards. Isolated tornadoes will be possible as well. While the threat of severe weather should end Saturday morning, more showers and isolated thunderstorms are forecasted during and after the cold front passes. Rain should end by late Saturday. Rainfall areawide will range from 1/2 to 1 inch. However, local amounts to 2-3 inches may occur and this could lead to street flooding, especially north of Highway 190. Since severe weather may occur during the overnight hours, be sure to have a means to receive weather alerts, such as through a weather radio.

With summer time quickly approaching, before you know it school will be out and that means more children playing in their neighborhoods. We are asking everyone to start getting in the habit of "Putting the Phone Down and Just Drive". We want all our children in the community to have a chance to be everything they can, that means the motoring public has to do everything they can to make that happen. What Is Distracted Driving? Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system—anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving. Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed. You cannot drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing.

Carencro Police Department wants to remind all of our residents that E. St. Peter St. will be closed on March 22, 2018 from 5:30pm - 8:30pm. The closure is to celebrate our Golden Bears Championship Win in Basketball.
