For many of us here in south Louisiana, the whump-whump-whump of Blackhawks flying overhead is the sound of yet another disaster unfolding. But when Governor John Bel Edwards took the choppers into Acadiana Monday, he was trusting that the sound would bring hope to residents coping with flooding along the Vermilion and Mermentau rivers.

Accompanied by most of his cabinet plus the regional director for FEMA, Edwards urged everyone impacted by the flooding to register with FEMA as soon as possible.

Hundreds of miles of south Louisiana is under water.

“I don’t want to say it’s worse than a hurricane – it’s just plenty bad,” Governor John Bel Edwards stated Sunday at the Emergency Ops briefing for the media.

The governor, who evacuated from the mansion due to flooding, says despite the rains easing up, this is far from over.

“This is an ongoing event that is far from over,” Governor John Bel Edwards said of the storm system that is sitting over south Louisiana and spinning slowly westward.

Using phrases like “unprecedented” and “record levels of flooding,” he went on to urge citizens to “Stay home if you are high and dry and safe,” as well as to “Evacuate immediately if you are told to do so.”

Louisiana Foster and Adoptive Parent Association

Louisiana’s Department of Children and Family Services is taking a new approach to foster care.

“It’s recruiting people that really, truly want to parent these children, and co-parent with their birth parents,” DCFS Secretary Marketa Garner Walters explains.
