Thousands of Homes Damaged or Destroyed in Historic Southern US Flooding

In Louisiana, more than 6,000 structures have been damaged or destroyed by flooding across the state, forcing about 5,000 people to evacuate.

Flooding has also severely affected Mississippi and Arkansas over the past several days.

  • About 1,000 homes in Mississippi have been damaged or destroyed.
