A significant flood threat is unfolding across the south-central states. Flooding began Monday night and early Tuesday in Texas, and spread into Louisiana Tuesday into early Wednesday, with numerous roads closed across the region due to high water. Several water rescues were reported. The worst of the flooding appears to be around Natchitoches, La., where local officials reported water entering homes early Wednesday. The National Weather Service declared a "flash flood emergency" for Natchitoches Parish and strongly discouraged travel in the area. One rain gauge in the parish reported over 10 inches of rain in 24 hours. The torrential downpours continue to spread slowly eastward Wednesday into the lower Mississippi Valley. Larger cities in the threat zone include New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Jackson, Miss.
