Second family reunited with their loved one!!!

My mother called me 10 minutes ago to say she and my brother were rescued off the roof of my brother's house by the Coast Guard. They are housed less than a mile away on the river and have been able to walk on land. This is in Arabi, LA. This area flooded early on I'm sure from the breached levee on the Industrial Canal which is just a few miles up from where my brother lives; she said the water rose quickly. They broke a hole in the roof and were rescued from there....KB
