The forecast for Louisiana is for more rain  and more pain.

.

With the state still swamped by historic flooding that has killed at least 13 people and displaced tens of thousands more, the National Weather Service warned Thursday that heavy rains could produce floods and flash flooding in parts of the state.

.

“The good news is it’s not widespread, more hit and miss,” said meteorologist Roger Erickson of the NWS station in Lake Charles. “The problem is there is nowhere for the water to run off. In the last couple of days, we’ve had to reissue flash flood warnings in areas that had been showing improvement.”

.

The result is dashed hopes for the legions of residents who fled their flooded homes for higher ground this week and were hoping to return to their homes and lives.

.

“It turns your heart upside down,” Erickson said. “You think it’s over, and then it starts raining again.”

.

Erickson said they’re “hoping for a drying period this weekend.”

.

“We still have rivers rising, though,” he said. “It’s going to take one to three weeks to get all this water out into the Gulf of Mexico.”

.

Most of Louisiana has gotten at least a foot of rain since Friday, with some places getting as much as 30 inches, according to the NWS. And the resulting arithmetic from some of the worst flooding to hit the state has been awful  13 dead, 8,400 people in shelters, 40,000 homes damaged, 30,000 people rescued.

.

In places in and around Baton Rouge where the water has started to recede, the scale of the devastation is starting to be seen.

.

President Barack Obama, who signed a major disaster declaration Sunday, got an update Wednesday on the flooding and the relief efforts from Craig Fugate, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, who is on the ground in Louisiana.

.

The White House said Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is heading to the hard-hit state Thursday.

.

“Already, more than 70,000 people have registered for individual assistance under the federal disaster declaration, and over 9,000 have filed flood insurance claims,” said Jen Friedman, a spokeswoman for the White House.

.

Meanwhile, the American Red Cross dispatched an army of volunteers to Louisiana to deal with what the relief group is calling “the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Superstorm Sandy.”

.

The 1,000 recruits are from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, said Brad Kieserman, who helps run the Red Cross’ logistics and disaster services operations.

.

“The Red Cross is mounting a massive relief operation, which we anticipate will cost at least $30 million, and that number may grow as we learn more about the scope and magnitude of the devastation,” Kieserman said.

.

Twenty parishes were included in the federal disaster zone, and more than a dozen continue to be subject to overnight curfews. At least 14 people have been arrested on suspicion of looting over the last two days in East Baton Rouge Parish, and nine more were arrested in nearby Livingston Parish, according to the Baton Rouge Advocate.

Explained: Why the News Was Late to Focus on the Louisiana Floods

As tens of thousands of people waded from swamped homes to flag down rescue boats in Louisiana this weekend, national newspapers and TV channels didn’t give the wall-to-wall coverage typical of calamity.

.

And people noticed.

.

The Houston Chronicle didn’t put the Louisiana floods on its front page until Monday, with the headline “Thousands homeless in Louisiana flooding” and a story by the Associated Press.

.

The Chronicle wasn’t alone. The New York Times’ public editor acknowledged in a web post Tuesday that “On Gulf Coast flooding, the Times is late to the scene,” and published input from a handful of readers who wondered why the unfolding catastrophe wasn’t getting the attention it deserved.

.

Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Tuesday in Louisiana, “You have the Olympics. You got the election. If you look at the national news, (the flood is) probably on the third or fourth page.”

.

“Just because the national media hasn’t picked up on thismaking it a headlinewe think it is a national headline disaster,” he said.

.

Somehow, the Louisiana floods didn’t turn to trending news as they unfolded. That was bad news for the victims, who depend on media publicity to spur federal and volunteer aid.

.

In an atmosphere often hostile to so-called “mainstream media,” the episode highlighted the vital, irreplaceable role that professional journalists and publications play in covering disasterseven in the age of camera phones, Twitter and Facebook Live. As the big outlets dropped the ball, the netizens declared: coverage was insufficient without the mainstream media on the ground.

.

“It’s an interesting time where journalism is both vilified and craved,” said Al Tompkins, senior faculty at the Poynter Institute. “In this day and time, when there are so many ways to get news, I think we’re suggesting that it still matters whether or not the cameras and the reporters are there.”

.

So why were the newsrooms so late to the scene? It’s not became they didn’t have warning. Forecasts for a monster storm emerged late in the week, while much of the national televised discourse focused on Donald Trump’s false assertion that President Barack Obama “founded” the Islamic State.
