Yes, Donna, Concordia ia a county we call parish in Louisiana. It flooded often until they built the ring levees. It flooded in 1945 and again in 1954-5 before they got the pumps and all finished. The levee blew out in the 30's I believe. Water was in the second floor of the Hotel in Ferriday which was the end of the train route. Don't have any names. But Bessie that I was referring to will help you. Penny
