Homeowners, Adjusters Waiting For Louisiana Floodwater to Recede
Iberville Parish emergency officials say it will be weeks before the high water recedes and the extent of the damage can be determined.
"This is the worse flood ever. I’ve never seen the water this high at my house in 40 years," Bayou Pigeon homeowner Mitch Collier said.
Collier and his wife Rose live on the levee side of the town, where knee-deep water has been around homes and along the roads since the storm last week.
"I rescued for the Cajun Navy in 2016. I’ve seen a lot of floods, but when it hits home, it’s a lot different," Collier said.
Insurance adjusters are also waiting for the water to recede so they can do their jobs.
