Louisiana Flooding Wreaks Havoc

Caskets were part of the drift-works. A man drowned due to the torrential waters. And an EF1 tornado was declared to be on the loose. Stormy weather caused among other things graveyards to lose their dead inhabitants. 

And the drought in Texas was over in a jiffy since the high levels of rainfall simply left the parched ground supersaturated with water. And as if this was not enough a tornado was sent spinning in its fury by the turbulent weather. 

About 12 caskets were afloat and had to be salvaged from the deluge. Over four dozen homes and flats got penetrated by the winding water tributaries. 

The reasons for residential damage were issues having to do with the conduits that led the water away from the area. Efforts at stemming the flow of the flood were underway. In Baton Rouge several homes, schools and business establishments got inundated. 

A man who was well past his middle age had died in the midst of a flooded parking space. He was found underneath his vehicle. It is being reasoned that the waters pushed him there. 

However, the death will be probed into for further clues. Meanwhile, storms struck the Houston region. Many of the highways and byways were closed thanks to the forces of Nature. 

The rainfall just wouldn’t stop. It kept going on and on. For a period lasting approximately a single day, the raindrops plopped in their merciless drive as the land got waterlogged. 

The people of the sectors that have been hit the hardest are in a distraught and anxious state of mind. It seems that man plans and the gods laugh. At least that is how the ancients saw it. 

Despite our modern (or rather postmodern) designs and safety standards, Mother Nature remains ten steps ahead and is a cruel source of devastation for puny man.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
