It's another soggy day in Louisiana, the third in a row.

Drenching storms have dropped more than 10 inches of rain on Shreveport since Tuesday night, flooding at least 125 homes. And the region could get four inches of rain more today. Several parishes remain under various watches and warnings for floods, flash floods and tornadoes.

The Louisiana storms have knocked out power to thousands of people, toppled trees and washed out roads. Ninety-mile-an-hour winds stripped the roof off a church in one town and took the roof off a new jail in another.

Homeowner Joseph Gardner saw items from his garage floating through his front yard yesterday. He says he expected rain, but not quite so much.
