YOUNGSVILLE, La. (KLFY)- With landfall of Barry, expected in the early morning hours of Saturday.
It’s all hands on deck at News 10.
Our sports team checked in with Acadiana residents making those last minute preparations.

Last minute preparation taking place all across Acadiana, and here in Youngsville, that too is the case.
At this site, for sandbag preparations, they used more than 13,000 bags and residents say they didn’t flood in 2016, but they were not messing around with Barry.

” We have everything. In our neighborhood, we are close, and we got water, food, snacks, batteries, lights, and some of us have generators, too,” Youngsville resident Danielle Comeaux said.

The severe weather has impacting everyone, including local sports.

Over in Fabacher field, the Cane Cutters’ game was postponed because of a bus issue for Baton Rouge.

Acadiana High is expected to be headed out Saturday and team management is keeping an eye on Barry.

“Sure, yes, we are going to watch, but we dont expect much flooding once we get on the interstate,” team owner Richard Chalmers said.
