Forecasters warned victims of ongoing historic and deadly Louisiana flooding to brace for more rain Sunday.
The disaster has forced rescues of more than 7,000 people so far, said Gov. John Bel Edwards at a news conference Sunday. Three deaths have been blamed on the floods, he said, and a fourth person is unaccounted for.
Although the storms that caused the flooding have moved to the west, another 2 to 4 inches of rain was expected Sunday in and around Baton Rouge. Rivers such as the Comite near East Baton Rouge and the Tickfaw near Livingston were expected to keep rising until Monday.
