    Background: The showers of spring have turned into one, big, wet blanket so far as the Southern states are concerned. A vicious storm front had dumped heavy rains across an area from Louisiana to the East coast and floods are now raging through five states. In northern Louisiana, where this film was taken, the rampaging Red River has forced the evacuation of hundreds of families. At Alexandria, a flood crest of 4 1 feet is expected. Thirty two feet is regarded as flood stage. Four hundred Air Force men have joined civilians in attempting to strengthen weakened levees and rescue stranded citizens. Elsewhere throughout the South flood waters and tornados are harassing Mississippi, Tennessee and the Carolinas.

    At Pikesville, Kentucky, National Guardsmen are aiding reasons work along the Levisa fork of the Big Sandy River, which is already two feet above flood stage. And in southwest Virginia residents have been placed on an evacuation alert as rivers and streams begin to swell over their banks. At St. Paul, Virginia, fifty house trailers were moved to higher ground. Rain continues to polt down over most of the distressed areas. Property damage has been considerable. Several persons have been injured. But fortunately there have been no fatalities so far.
