Storm clouds continue to threaten a downpour over a devastated neighborhood in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A debris-lined street braces itself for the potential of more rain, which has already caused unprecedented floods in the area. The debris left at the wake of the disaster will take months to clear though this neighborhood wasn’t hit the hardest. Aside from causing thousands of dollars in damages to some areas of Baton Rouge, the floods have left many homeless throughout the city. Over 60,000 homes have either been damaged or destroyed leaving thousands of residents hoping for aid during this trying time.
