“Torrential rains eased Monday in flood-ravaged Louisiana, but forecasters that warned the threat was far from over.
Louisiana has been deluged by rainfall since last week, with at least seven people dead and thousands of homes damaged by floods. Gov. John Bel Edwards said officials “won’t know the death toll for sure for several more days.”
One of the dead was an elderly woman in the town of Hinesville, whom authorities hailed as a hero for saving the toddler who was in the car she was driving.
Rapides Parish sheriff’s officials told NBC station KALB of Alexandria that the woman, whose name hasn’t been released pending notification of her relatives, lost control of her car, which was swept off the road.”
