Flood Impacts & Photos Collapse
If you notice any errors in the below information, please contact our Webmaster
9.86 Water levels are near those reached with the storm surge from Hurricane Ike in 2008. Widespread catastrophic flooding occurs across much of Orange.
6 Major flooding can be expected. Numerous roads and homes in Orange are subject to flooding. Backwater flooding along Adams Bayou can be expected. Water begins to approach the travel lanes on I-10.
5 Moderate flooding can be expected along the river with some roads in Orange likely flooded. Back water flooding can also be expected along Adams Bayou in Orange.
4 Flooding of mainly secondary roads near the river can be expected. Steward Road may become impassable near the weigh station in Louisiana. The Louisiana weigh station is flooded. Water surrounds the Louisiana and Texas welcome centers.
