‘Un­prece­dented’ floods kill 3 in the US

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Tor­ren­tial rains have caused record flood­ing in parts of the south­ern United States, with US me­dia re­port­ing at least three deaths. Flood­ing in south­east Lou­i­si­ana and south­ern Mis­sis­sippi shut down roads, cut­ting off at least one town as an area of low pres­sure slowly moved west along the Gulf Coast. Lou­i­si­ana Gov­er­nor John Bel Ed­wards de­clared a state of emer­gency, call­ing the flood­ing “un­prece­dented”. The floods killed at least three peo­ple, me­dia re­ported. Among them, a man in the Lou­i­si­ana town of Zachary, near the cap­i­tal Ba­ton Rouge, drowned try­ing to es­cape flood wa­ters.
