It was easy to be distracted from what’s happening in Louisiana with all the media attention focused on the recent international games in Rio De Janeiro, but make no mistake about it: our fellow Americans in the Bayou State are drowning.

Triggered by record rainfalls, and some say, climate change, flooding in Louisiana has reached disastrous proportions. The floods have already claimed the lives of 11 people and displaced thousands of others. Scores of homes have been damaged and even swept away, underscoring the need for reliable flood insurance companies now more than ever.

Flooding Of Epic Proportions

The American Red Cross described the state’s flooding as “the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Superstorm Sandy” and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association classified the record rainfall as a once-in-every-500-years event—the eighth such event to take place in the U.S. since May 2015.

(As your trusted flood insurance company, Superior Flood Inc. recently attempted to dispel the myth of the 100- or even 500-year flood. As we pointed out in a previous post, Mother Nature can change her mind at any point in time, and when she does, you don’t want to be the one who didn’t have the time to shop for flood insurance companies).
