Consumers in the market to purchase a used car should keep an eye out for flood-damaged vehicles during their search. Hurricanes and flooding events in Louisiana and nearby states in the last few months mean that consumers need to be on their guard.
“Louisiana has been through enough floods to know that the aftermath can bring out scammers and people looking to take advantage of unsuspecting victims,” said Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon.

Train crossing safety stressed

The La. 13 railroad crossing was a busy place Thursday with police, deputies and reporters and photographers on the scene.

The event was for Crossing Accident Reduction Education and Operation Life Saver Officer on the Train.
