Areas of Louisiana have been hit hard by tragic, historic flooding, with thousands of residents finding themselves stranded and possibly losing their homes. As of Sunday evening, more than 20,000 had been rescued and at least four people died. Louisiana authorities warned that the flooding might not be over yet if scattered showers fall in the region. Gov. John Bel Edwards had the area declared a disaster. "This is a serious event," he said. "It is ongoing. It is not over."
