14 The river is at its flood of record. Widespread catastrophic flooding will occur.
11.8 Water levels are near those reached during Tropical Storm Allison in 1989. This is the second highest stage on record. Many Road and homes are inundated.
9.4 Water levels are near those reached in november 2002, which is the fourth highest crest on record. Numerous roads, homes and camps near the river are flooded.
9.1 Major flooding can be expected. Water levels are near those reached during the storm surge of Hurricane Ike in 2008. Numerous roads, homes and camps near the river are flooded.
7.9 Water completely covers Goos Ferry Road all the way to the River Road entrance. Flood water enters lower levels of some elevated homes on Goos Ferry Road. Flooding of White Oak Park occurs.
5.9 Extensive flooding with water in several homes and camps.
4.9 Lower end of Pickrel Lane near the river begins to flood. Goos Ferry Road is impassable. Closure of the Calcasieu River to recreational boat traffic is likely from the Saltwater Barrier to the parish line.
3.9 Goos Ferry Road becomes impassable. Calcasieu River from the Saltwater Barrier to the parish line may be closed to recreational boat traffic.
2.9 Water over lowest portions of Goos Ferry Road. Cars should be moved to higher ground.
