Fighting Louisiana flooding with trucks

Dubbed the worst natural disaster to hit the U.S. since Hurricane Sandy four years ago, Louisiana continues to struggle with the aftereffects of massive flooding from what’s described as “catastrophic” amounts of rainfall this August – topping 30 inches in parts of the Pelican State. Louisiana National Guard Soldiers are stepping in to help residents recover from this historic flooding, and they are using lots and lots of trucks to do it.
