    St. Francisville, LA Flooding

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     'This was right when they opened one of the first spillways,' says faisalas78. He says some of the people who live in these homes were still there when this video was taken. 'There were a few seemingly futile attempts to put sandbags up, and it seems like that's not going to help at all. I think they're just waiting until the last second to leave,' he told me.

    The river continues to rise as residents debate whether or not to  evacuate.  This St. Francisville neighborhood, 1 mile away from the  banks of the Mississippi, floods quickly as the river continues its path of devastation and heartache.
