And now the search begins

Now the true sadness begins as the rescuers go from house to house looking for survivors and finding the dead. There is no telling how many people lost their lives in their own homes when they tried to get above the flood water and ended up trapped in their attics. It will take quite some time to get through every house and every building in just one parish, much less the entire flood area of Louisiana. A similar search will be going on in Mississippi, Alabama, and even the Florida panhandle and Tennessee. Looking for the lost within the wreckage that is left of so many lives.
