President Obama is due to arrive in Baton Rouge this afternoon to visit areas hit hard by floods that struck the state earlier this month.
The White House tells us he will tour East Baton Rouge Parish beginning at 12:15pm with reporters and photographers; that tour will last 40 minutes. The President will then read a statement to the press and depart Baton Rouge airport for Washington, DC.
We will have more on his visit later today here and in our other channels.
