East reservation flooding on Barksdale
Airman 1st Class Tessa B Corrick did a series of photos showing the significant flooding at Barksdale AFB in early May. The floods caused havoc at the base.

Shown above: An alligator floats along the water in a pond at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., May 9, 2019. According to 2nd Security Forces Squadron game wardens, flooding can cause animals such as snakes and alligators to move and appear in areas they normally wouldn’t, and people should be aware of surroundings especially in flooded areas.
