St. Martin Sheriff’s officials are asking anyone in the Stephensville/Belle River who received water inside their home as a result of the recent high water to call the St. Martin Parish Office Of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (337) 394-2808.

Road closures are still in effect for some streets in Stephensville in Lower St. Martin Parish due to flooding.

East Stephensville Road, Tower Tank Road, Four Mile Bayou Road, Landry Street, Adell Street, and Edna Street remain closed to vehicular traffic except for residents who reside there, according to Major Ginny Higgins, spokesperson for the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office. Only Stephensville Road and Bayou Estates Subdivision have reopened.

The Sheriff’s Office warns people to not sightsee or attempt to go around barricades and/or signage that have been put in place.
