30 parishes to be declared flood disasters, Louisiana governor says
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Neighbors Brad Jacobs and Erik Lang woke up Monday to survey the mess caused by floodwaters surrounding their homes. Unlike thousands of other south Louisianans, the flooding hadn't displaced them. "I am lucky," Lang said. "Super lucky. Feeling blessed." Both men seem to realize things could be much worse as swollen rivers keep rising in the state's historic and deadly flood.
