The City of Gladewater issued a “state of local disaster declaration” in Monday afternoon in response to scattered damage throughout the city caused by the weekend storms. Road damage is on East Lake Drive and West Lake Drive, so motorists should use caution when driving those roads. City Manager Theo Melancon said the declaration will help the city apply for emergency grants to help pay for repairs. City crews were out assessing the damaged areas Monday and prioritizing which areas needed fixing first.
