Photos: Heavy storms pass through S. Louisiana

The first wave of a weather system that hit south Louisiana Wednesday morning brought widespread flooding from Lake Charles to southeast Louisiana and it’s not over yet with more rain expected over the next couple days.

The River Parishes were particularly hard hit with some areas receiving almost 10 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service.

Many roads were closed, homes were flooded, sandbags were flying out of the Lamar Dixon Expo Center Wednesday morning to try to keep up with rising water and a tornado touched down in Garyville.
