The Town of Berwick has announced the closings of several floodgates as a result of high water levels in the Atchafalaya River. The gates at Gus, First, Lima and Pacific Streets are now closed.
According to information from the town, the Gus St. floodgate closure will affect the school bus route in that area once students return to school on Monday, March 11. We will find out further information once it’s available.
The Atchafalaya River at Morgan City is predicted to crest at 8 feet on March 20.
