National Guard delivers flood relief

Grant Parish, LA (KALB) Flooding continued across Louisiana Wednesday.

In Grant Parish, Sheriff Steven McCain described it as the worst disaster the parish had ever seen.

"It’s thousands. It’s literally thousands of people," said Sheriff McCain.

His office joined with the Louisiana National Guard to provide commodities for those in flooding communities.

On Wednesday morning, the sheriff’s office and Louisiana National Guard loaded up trucks to help out.

"We couldn’t have done this by ourselves, and we can’t do this by ourselves. The National Guard has been a lifesaver," Sheriff McCain said.

The soldiers headed out with 16 pallets of bottled water, 1,000 "flood buckets" filled with cleaning supplies and towels to pass out.

"We’re not new to this kind of disaster. We’re ready to train. We’re prepared," said Major Marc Prymek of the 199th Support Battalion.
