Rains from Tropical Storm Barry have continued to fall overnight and throughout the morning in communities around Acadiana.

Drone video taken by Jeremy Choplin on Sunday, July 14 shows flooding in the Youngsville area. The videos show the area of Hwy 92 and Copper Meadows subdivision and Cane Wagon Circle. Many of the areas seeing flooding in Youngsville on Sunday were impacted by flooding in August 2016.

More video from Youngsville shows flooding in the Highland Ridge Subdivision. Viewer Kenneth Hall shared this video from Dusty Cannon Road where water is beginning to slowly rise towards homes.

Other images of flooding were shared to the KATC Facebook page.
