The spring season is the time for change and that includes weather.

Northeast Louisiana experiences some of the most severe weather from March to June. Tornadoes, high winds, and flash floods all can happen in an instant, and it's best interest to be prepared.

Prior to severe weather, the National Weather Service issues a watch a few hours before active weather; then, a warning is issued once signs of severe weather begin.
