WPSO Press Release on Today's Stormy Weather

Washington Parish Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Mike Haley released the following:

“FYI, attached are some pictures I took earlier this morning as I rode around the eastern side of the parish, particularly Adams/O’Berry Road off of Ben’s Ford Road and Highway 439 near Bill Booty Road.

I did not make it to the northeast portion of the parish, although I understand there was property and tree damage in both the Varnado and Angie areas. Sorry I don’t have more information about those areas. I understand also there was tree damage in the Poole’s Bluff area on Highway 21 south.

The mobile home on Adams/O’Berry Road was flipped upside down. Two men were inside and were rescued from the rubble by Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies, Bogalusa Police Department officers, Fire District 7 personnel and Northshore EMS personnel.  The two men were transported by Northshore to Our Lady of Angels Hospital. I do not have a report on their condition, although neither was reported as having life threatening injuries.

The house on Hwy 439 near Bill Booty Road was occupied by an elderly lady who was sitting in a chair in her den. Wind collapsed the wall of the den which fell within a couple of feet of the lady. She was not injured and is staying with her daughter and son-in-law.

Several people, including my wife, reported what sounded like a freight train at the time the wind struck early this morning.

I do not have any information about any damage on the west side of the parish.”
