Louisiana Fights Back From Devastation
Louisiana Fights Back From Devastation with search parties going door to door looking for survivors or bodies, Louisiana continues to dig itself out from devastating floods. The flooding was so powerful in some cases it disturbed the dead and sent caskets floating from cemeteries.
After torrential rains lashed the region, at least 13 people died in the flooding that swept through parts of southern Louisiana. As the waters have slowly receded in many areas, the hard work of rebuilding lives is just ramping up. People are cleaning out their homes while others struggle to find a place to stay.
In a uniquely Louisiana problem, some families are also trying to rebury family members whose caskets were unearthed by the floods.
According to Brant L. Thompson from the State Fire Marshal’s office, search teams going house to house are going out at least through the weekend.
