The damage assessments from the recent flooding in Baton Rouge and other surrounding areas are coming in, and the news is not good. Currently, it is estimated that more than 40,000 homes and businesses have been affected, some completely wiped out. Tens-of thousands of rescues have been completed, and at least 11 people have died. At Wholesale Flooring & Granite, our hearts and prayers go out to those who have suffered in this disaster.

While the numbers will change with time, here is the latest:
“BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - At least 40,000 homes were damaged and eight people killed in the historic Louisiana floods, the governor said Tuesday, giving a stark assessment of the widespread disaster. Gov. John Bel Edwards spoke at a news conference alongside FEMA administrator Craig Fugate, saying "well over" 20,000 people have been rescued since the flooding began Friday. His office later increased that figure to more than 30,000.”
