"David Garrott pulled a boat loaded with sandbags to a neighbor's house in Pearl River, Louisiana, where the photographer @misterwidmer was on #nytassignment today covering the destruction that is mounting as floodwater engulfs the state. After days of extraordinary rainfall — some places recorded more than 20 inches in less than 72 hours, the @nationalweatherservice said — the rising waters that ruined homes from Mooringsport to Merryville are now swelling the rivers, bayous and lakes of southern #Louisiana. On Monday, fears mounted that more damage was to come, particularly along the state's western edge." By nytimes on Instagram.
