Torrential rains leave behind flood waters in Acadia
By Howell Dennis
Torrential rains that have inundated the area for the past several days have left much of Acadia with flooded streets, yards, and fields.
While the more serious flooding was in Louisiana’s eastern parishes, the Acadiana area - especially Iberia and Vermilion, and Acadia residents - have been driving down flooded streets and at least one accident was reported on I-10 yesterday when a vehicle apparently lost control and flipped. No serious injuries wee reported.
“If I was duck hunting I’d be happy with this but right now it’s just making a mess,” said Riley Gordon as he looked at the dark skies from underneath his patio Tuesday. “They say it is supposed to stop sometime this afternoon . . .then I hear it’s supposed.”
According to meteorologists, Gordon is right. Temperatures are supposed to be dropping into the 40’s this evening and are expected to dip into the 30’s by this weekend.
