Louisiana Resident Swims Through Floodwater Like an Olympian

(STORYFUL) One Louisiana resident decided to take a swim — Olympic style — in the floodwater near his home on Friday, August 12. Jo Guidry is seen diving into the flooded area outside his home and swimming a lap as an Olympic athlete would.

Heavy rain throughout southern Louisiana triggered flooding that closed roads and prompted water rescues. The National Weather Service reported up to three inches of rain was falling per hour and up to 10 inches of rain fell over a 24-hour period.
