The disastrous floods that ravaged Louisiana in August 2016 affected nearly half of the homes in Baton Rouge alone. Incredible.
One lesser-known aftereffect of the flooding was the damage
done to vehicles. The Automotive News, a trade publication, reported that an estimated 100,000 insured vehicles in the state were damaged by floodwaters. A nonprofit agency, the National Insurance Crime Bureau, further estimated that more than that number of uninsured vehicles, mostly older models, were also damaged by the floodwaters.
