63.39 Flood of Record.
62 Angola landing will remain under water and all ferry service will be terminated. All river islands along the reach from red river landing to baton rouge will remain inundated with recreational camps and river bottom farm land under water.
61.61 Flood of March 24, 1997.
59 The east bank levee will be topped and the prison farm land between the two levees will be inundated. Angola landing will be under water closing the ferry there. All river islands along the reach from red river landing to baton rouge will remain inundated with recreational camps and river bottom farm land under water.
58 Angola farmland on the left bank becomes inundated.
54 All river islands along the reach from red river landing to baton rouge will be inundated. Recreational camps and river bottom land will be under water. Water approaches angola farm land.
51 All river islands along the reach from red river landing to baton rouge will be inundated. Recreational camps and river bottom farm land will be under water.
48 Access roads will be inundated and evacuation of all river islands must be complete. Protection of people and property in the river bottom land on the river side of the levees must be complete
46 River traffic will become dangerous. A levee crevasse would flood adjacent farm land. Significant flooding of raccourci island will continue and evacuation of the island is recommended
