A report released Friday by the Baton Rouge Area Chamber estimated that more than 110,000 homes worth more than $20 billion had been damaged in some way in just nine of the 20 parishes under a federal disaster declaration. Only about 15 percent of the households in those parishes had flood insurance, according to the report.

Plus, Louisiana's representatives voted against Superstorm Sandy aid to northeastern states but will probably demand plenty of aid for their own disaster that is largely self-inflicted.
