Louisiana flooding unearths caskets from cemeteries

The record flooding in Louisiana is causing caskets to float to the surface in several cemeteries, according to KBMT-TV.

Caskets floating to the surface is a problem that happens at low-lying cemeteries during flooding, especially in the South. Last fall, cemeteries in South Carolina dealt with unearthed caskets during that state’s record flooding in October.

Floating caskets were also reported during hurricanes such as Katrina and Rita in 2005 and Ike in 2008.
