HUFFINGTON POST

Jeff Robinson wades through flood waters near his home in Baptist, La., Saturday, Aug. 13, 2016, as he seeks a boat ride from state wildlife agents to pick up his wife and children. A slow-moving storm that has dumped almost a foot of rain in Louisiana parishes south and west and Mississippi counties north of the Mississippi-Louisiana state line, are in for more rain. National Guard soldiers and other officials in boats and helicopters plucked more than 1,000 people from their homes and cars as "unprecedented, historic" flooding swamped Louisiana, the governor said Saturday.
