While torrential rains were expected to ease in flood-ravaged Louisiana on Monday, forecasters warned the threat was far from over.
Louisiana has been hit by a deluge of rainfall since last week, with at least seven people dead and thousands of homes damaged by historic floods.
Gov. John Bel Edwards said officials "won't know the death toll for sure for several more days."
