The Jeff Davis and also the Acadia Parish Sheriffs office have issued a parish wide curfew for their parishes due to high water on roads, flooding conditions and the expectation of even more rain tonight into tomorrow.
It started with a two vehicle accident in the inside lane on I-10 westbound just west of Welch. It ended when another vehicle became involved and hit the driver (of one of the first vehicles.) The Lafayette man was pronounced dead on the scene.
The election for Nov. 4 is a huge election day for local, state and federal offices. In Jeff Davis Parish, there are 22 seats to be filled. All state voters will be looking at 14 separate state constitutional amendments. Get prepared!
