Thousands rescued during widespread S. Louisiana flooding
BATON ROUGE - Louisiana's governor says at least 7,000 people have been rescued so far due to widespread flooding in the state.
Gov. John Bel Edwards emphasized Sunday that the rain-caused flooding was "not over."
He says the fatalities have not risen from the three dead reported on Saturday. One person is unaccounted for in St. Helena Parish.
Edwards says the storm has "subsided in its intensity" but he is encouraging people to not go out and "sightsee" even as the weather gets better.
The governor says water is continuing to rise in some areas even though the sunshine is out.
