The Calcasieu River in the Lake Charles area also is well above flood stage. A school bus trying to drive on a flooded road got stuck and almost tipped over near the town of Iowa, Louisiana.

But the mess left behind was substantial. Residents aren't breathing easy yet: More rain on Thursday will keep the river high for several days.
