As many of you have seen, historic flooding on top of the record floods the state suffered earlier this year has devastated south Louisiana.  Damage caused by the flooding brought back nightmares of Hurricane Katrina.  Many have referred to it as Katrina 2.0.   Heavy flooding in Louisiana has left 13 people dead and damaged an estimated 53,000 houses leaving thousands of residents forced to evacuate.
