Via WWL/The DMN: Much of Slidell still flooded; recovery could take months

Much of this town of 30,000 near the Louisiana-Mississippi line remained underwater Tuesday as crews in flatboats pulled people from submerged houses and dazed survivors tried to salvage homes and businesses.


Officials estimated that 85 percent of homes and businesses in Slidell were damaged or destroyed. Power and telephones were out citywide. Downed lines and broken trees lay across many streets. Recovery could take months, officials said.
