Severe weather is forcing hundreds of people from their homes in Louisiana this morning. People in some areas have been drenched with more than a foot of rain this week.
The storms brought widespread flooding, prompting Gov. Bobby Jindal to declare a state of emergency.
Adding insult to injury, three tornadoes ripped across the state on Thursday. Dozens of people were rescued from their homes, but there are no reports of injuries.
HLN meteorologist Bob Van Dillen says “the heaviest stuff has gone, but we still have some scattered showers out there.” Flood warnings remain in place for many parishes.
