As you might know that our state, Louisiana experienced “highest rainfall” in 2016.
On that time, rainfall reached 510 mm (20 inches) in many parishes (territories), caused overflows in the streets, rivers and waterways. Rain dropped about “7.1 trillion gallons of water” in one week.
2016 great flood in Louisiana cost billion of dollar, estimated from US$ 10 to US$ 15 billion dollars.
Catastrophic Flooding had contributed to:
- submerge of thousand business
- loss of agricultural production
- 60 people dead
However, our current two days rainfall was very “small” compared to 2016 disaster. But, its flash flood was scary enough.
As you can see (please see Fig 01, 02 and 04 at above), the water had flown in front of the houses.
This flows dragging and moving around many things include:
From local news that 2 dead in our city, and totally 4 death in the state of Louisiana.
No one of my neighbors.
