Did you know the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury has more than 80 rain gauges all over Calcasieu Parish to monitor rainfall and drainage?

Since spring and summer are Southwest Louisiana's official rainy seasons,  parish officials want to remind residents that they can visit the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury's rain gauge site to monitor rainfall totals in their areas. To do so, go to, find the "Rain & Stream Maps" bar and then click on the rain amount you want to view. 

To learn about the rain gauges, where they are, and how you can access their data, click below to watch this video edition of "The Parish Line."


Also, the site updates continually, so stay tuned!
