As you’re likely aware, record flooding has devastated Baton Rouge. Since our last update just a few days ago, 10,000 more people have been displaced bringing the total to 30,000. The flooding is now officially the worst natural disaster to hit the U.S. since Superstorm Sandy.

The governor of Louisiana had this to say about the flooding: “When you have a storm that is unnamed – it wasn’t a tropical storm, it wasn’t a hurricane – a lot of times people underestimate the impact that it would have…. But this is historic. We are seeing unprecedented flood levels as the waters move south.”
