BATON ROUGE, La. - The capital area is bracing for yet another threat of potential flooding Thursday.
According to the City Parish, the National Weather Service (NWS) is reporting that Baton Rouge will be hit with at least one to two inches of rain.

Residents are encouraged to monitor local weather reports as Thursday approaches. Use caution while traveling on roadways. Do not drive through high water nor around barricades that have been placed for your safety.” -EBR Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome
