President Obama paying a visit to Louisiana Tuesday where recovery from the state's historic flooding is just beginning.

FOX's Eben Brown reports from Baton Rouge:

There are many here hope that the President will remind the nation that just because the water's dried, their crisis isn't over:

(Woman) "This is worse than Sandy."

The President visited one of the nearly destroyed neighborhoods here in the Baton Rouge metro, where a 100,000 people have put in paperwork for emergency aid:

(President Obama) "As of today, federal support has reached $127 million, that's for help like temporary rental assistance, essential home repairs and flood insurance payments."

And the President asks Congress to act after they return from their summer break.
