The aftermath of severe storms that swept through Shreveport-Bossier overnight has left several establishments grappling with power outages, leading to closures across the area. From government facilities to educational institutions, the impact of the inclement weather has disrupted normal operations on Monday, April 29.

In Shreveport, the City Courthouse announced its closure due to the power outages stemming from the previous night’s weather disturbances. The outage, affecting both the City and Caddo Parish, prompted the closure of the courthouse. However, court filings will continue to be accepted via facsimile in compliance with legal requirements.

Meanwhile, in Bossier Parish, several schools have been affected by the power outages, necessitating closures for the day. Among the campuses closed are Curtis Elementary, Haughton Middle, Legacy Elementary, Parkway High, Plain Dealing, and Princeton.

The closures come as a result of the challenges posed by the power outages, which have impacted the ability of these institutions to operate safely and effectively. With the safety and well-being of students, staff, and visitors being of paramount importance, officials have taken the proactive step of closing affected campuses until power is restored and normal operations can resume.

Residents are advised to stay tuned to local news updates and official channels for any further developments regarding the restoration of power and the reopening of affected establishments.

As repair crews work diligently to address the power outages and restore electricity to the affected areas, the community is urged to exercise caution and patience during this time of inconvenience.

For further information and updates, individuals are encouraged to contact their respective institutions or monitor official communications from local authorities.
