It has been one year since floods hit Louisiana and Governor John Bel Edwards was in Washington this week asking for more money for flood assistance. $1.6 billion dollars has been approved for Louisiana but Washington hasn’t released that money to Louisiana for distribution.

Congressman Ralph Abraham thinks the process is taking too long.

“Everybody is frustrated on both the state and federal level that the money has not yet got into anybody’s hands.”

Taylor Swift is donating $1 million to Louisiana flood relief after torrential rains caused massive flooding in the state and killed at least 11 people.

 Swift told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Louisiana residents graciously welcomed her when she kicked off the U.S. dates of her "1989 World Tour" in the state last year.
