EAST BATON ROUGE, La. (BP) -- Mary Cupit, 81, awoke to banging on her bedroom window during the early hours as Chad Tyrone, a new neighbor, knocked frantically to warn of encroaching floodwater. By the time Mary roused her caregiver -- her deaf brother Donald Cupit, 73 -- he only had time to throw on some clothes and grab his wallet and keys before helping his sister into a waiting car filled with neighbors they barely knew in East Baton Rouge. The drive to safety took them to Tyrone's grandmother's house where the Cupits were welcomed as family.

The church steeple dangled on its side, its tip pointed downward into deep water. For Campbell, the devastation was personal. Two months earlier, he had walked his bride down the aisle on their wedding day and out through doors now submerged in water.
