More than 20,000 people required rescue in a storm that put 12,000 people in shelters and killed at least six, and the state’s governor says ‘it is not over’
Barack Obama declared Louisiana a federal disaster zone on Sunday after historic flash floods in the state left at least six people dead and caused more than 20,000 people to be rescued.
The storm has put another 12,000 people into temporary shelters, Governor John Bel Edwards said during a press conference. Residents were pulled from water-logged homes, flooded cars and at-risk hospitals across the southern portion of the state, he said.
