Please pray for our fellow gamers in Southern Louisiana area (particularly around the Baton Rouge/Livingston/Denham Springs area). The area has been hit with significant flooding. At least 3 deaths are attributed to the flooding. I'm not sure how much it has hit national news but the footage I've seen, it's pretty bad.


This is terrible. I'm so sorry. It will be in my prayers.

Death toll increased to 7. Flood waters continue to rise. I know with the Milwaukee situation this isn't getting sufficient coverage in the National media. If you can, reach out to charities like United Way and Red Cross.

This was apparently more serious than local news reports made it seem. I am certainly keeping these folks in my prayers, although I'm not sure I can donate to any charites right now.

As one of those gamers from BR, I appreciate this. I was lucky in that water only got within four feet of my house. My parents - not so much.

To put some of this in context, by all accounts I am 1/2 to 3/4 a mile from the recognized flood zone. Most of the people affect were due to backwater flooding up through the storm sewers.

At last count 20,000 people had to be rescued from flooding homes. Half of those are in shelters. Death toll is currently at 7.

I have a lot of friends and family in southern Louisiana, and thankfully only a few have been affected by these floods. On a positive note, this story is pretty bad ass.

As I Catholic, I pray. As a scientist, I dont expect God to do all the work so I do what I can on an individual level but donating time, energy, money and compassion. This is definitely not getting the media coverage it deserves and I thank everyone that helps my fellow Gamers from Louisiana.

For the record, I would appreciate just getting the word out about the flooding. Apparently it is not news worthy enough.

On a different note, most of the rescues have been due to the Cajun Navy. We are use to helping our own.

Thankfully FEMA has stayed out of the way of the rescues this time.

I must agree upon the lack of news coverage on this one. This is far worse than I was lead to believe, as I noted above.

I only know as much as I do from family of friends down in that area.

Removed a few posts. Folks, it's often difficult to parse intent via text and jumping to the worst conclusion can be detrimental to any conversation. Let's not escalate this thread into a debate of the right/wrong way to react/provide support, and be civil to one another.
