WALKER - In Livingston Parish hundreds are still dealing with flooding after Isaac.

Several people who live in the Greenwich Village subdivision in Walker say it's the worst they can remember.

Tim Henderson says, "We didn't anticipate this water. And there's plenty of houses on our street that's never flooded before."

Some still don't have power. Others can barely leave the house.

That's why Walker Mayor, Bobby Font and several volunteers are going house to house delivering a hot meal and cold drinks.

Font agrees. He says, "You get tired of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches after a couple of days."

Livingston parish is one of four parishes added today where residents can seek federal help.
