Red River Recovers

Recovery efforts are well underway as parish residents clean up a wide path of debris left by several severe storms that moved through late last week.  Some residents are still without power as power companies work to restore downed transmission lines.

The Red River Fire Department posted this update several days ago:

RRFD, RRSO, DOTD, and RRPJ  have been clearing roadways since the early morning hours. Please drive safe if you’re traveling. Although roadways may be cleared for travel, some debris may still be on the roadway.

Red River Fire District would also like to thank all the members of our great community who stopped this morning to help clear roadways. It is an amazing sight to see our parish entities and members of or community work together. We at Red River Fire District hope everyone has a safe and blessed day.

According to the latest news release from SWEPCO issued Tuesday, all of the households in the Natchitoches District should have their power on by Tuesday night.  Others in the area are not so fortunate, with restoration times ranging out as far as Saturday, June 24th.
