Why is flooding in Louisiana being ignored?

A disastrous flood began wreaking havoc in Louisiana two weeks ago.

Downpours dumped up to 30 inches of rain in some areas.

The floodwaters have damaged tens of thousands of homes, leaving many residents stranded or homeless.

More than a dozen people have been killed.

The Red Cross have called the disaster "the worst to hit the United States since Superstorm Sandy."

But just by looking at national media coverage, you might not know it's even happening.

Many people noticed several major news outlets had failed to put even one story about the flooding on their home pages when it was at its worst over the weekend.

President Barack Obama signed a major disaster declaration on Aug. 14, but as of Thursday morning, he had yet to make a public address, like he did with Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

The White House said Friday that Obama plans to travel to Baton Rouge on Tuesday.

As for other major politicians, as of Thursday, Hillary Clinton had mentioned the floods once in a tweet.

Donald Trump had said nothing until Friday, when he toured the flood-stricken regions of the state, spoke to people affected by the disaster and helped hand out relief supplies.

So why does it seem like no one is treating the flooding in Louisiana for what it truly is -- a disaster?

Officials in Louisiana have a few ideas.

"When you have a storm that is unnamed, it wasn't a tropical storm and it wasn't a hurricane, a lot of times people underestimate the impact it would have. But this is historic," Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards told reporters.

And a rep for the Federal Emergency Management Agency said, "You had the Olympics, you've got the election, and if you looked at the national news, you're probably only on the third or fourth page."

The Red Cross has estimated it will cost at least $30 million to repair the devastation in Louisiana once the floodwaters recede. The organization is encouraging donations.

2 dead, hundreds displaced by Maryland floods

Severe flooding in central Maryland has left at least two dead and hundreds of others picking up the pieces.

The flash flooding struck Ellicott City on Saturday night. Officials said residents Jessica Watsula and Joseph Anthony Blevins were swept away in their cars in separate incidents.

"Cars everywhere, sidewalks missing, roads partially gone, utility poles down, cars on top of cars," Howard County Executive Allan Kittleman said of the scene. 

Officials report Ellicott City received more than six inches of rain in a matter of hours. Kittleman said in the aftermath of the storm, the city looked like a "war zone."

"I've seen the flooding in Ellicott City in the past, and it's been bad. It has never been close to being this bad," he said.

Photos from WMAR show vehicles almost completely submerged and water flooding the streets.

As of Sunday, Howard County police had no other missing person reports from the floods.
