Twelve-year-old Andre Lentini shows how high the water flooded his home in Carencro, Louisiana, March 13, 2012. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal on Tuesday declared a state of emergency in four parishes in the Southern part of the state after a deluge of rain prompted flash flooding. More than 14 inches of rain drenched the area as it moved eastward across southern Louisiana, according to the National Weather Service in Lake Charles. REUTERS/Jonathan Bachman (UNITED STATES)
