    I took this video the other day with all the recent flooding going on to give residents and idea of what has happened. I did not think it would be viewed over 7K times.

    Still a newbie pilot here but am learning more and more as I fly.

    That's intense! So much water... Here in Southern, AZ it's been dry as hell and we wish we had some of that water! Looks like you could use a gimbal/IMU calibration for that crooked horizon.

    either way, thanks for the great video!

    This was in the Hammond, Ponchatoula area. About 4 hrs southeast of Monroe.

    Hope you guys get plenty of help down there. When is the crest predicted or is it still rising?

    I think I'm getting the leftovers from that storm here in Canada the last two days.

    PS I used to ski the Tickfaw River.

    This was taken Saturday March 12. The Tangipahoa crested Saturday night at about 11:45 p.m. I know that the Tickfaw River and Amite River also went well over double the flood stage numbers.
    Lots of people came to help in addition to the nearby neighbors helping each other out.
