Gov. John Bel Edwards of Louisiana and his office said that more than 30,000 people had been rescued since the flooding began Friday.
To give people living in the Phoenix area some perspective of how much rain has been falling in Louisiana this week, the National Weather Service matched up rainfall totals between two cities.
The NWS found that Baton Rouge has seen more rainfall in just the last seven days than Phoenix has gotten in over the last two-and-a-half years.
