Major flooding in the South is a cautionary tale for all homeowners

Torrential rains over the past week have pummeled a wide swathe of the South from eastern Texas to Mississippi — and residents in some areas will face the threat of flooding for weeks to come.

More than a foot of rain has fallen in the South in recent days, thanks to a series of severe thunderstorms. Over Mother’s Day weekend, the downpours led to flash flooding everywhere from Houston and New Orleans to Baton Rouge, La., and parts of South Mississippi. High winds and hail added to the damage many homeowners and renters face.

Flooding has been an issue for the entire length of the Mississippi River from the Iowa-Illinois border to New Orleans.
