Louisiana Flood

Lots of Louisiana remains flooded this morning, and some areas will get worse before they get better. There are still highways shut down, and the currently recommended route from Houston to New Orleans involves driving to Shreveport, taking I-20 to Meridian, MS, and I-59 south to NOLA.
I really feel for the poor folks who have suffered losses - been there myself  and know that recovery will be a long and painful process.
But -
CBS reported yesterday, and I suppose that it's true, that only one in eight homes and businesses that flooded in Baton Rouge had flood insurance!
They're 56 feet above sea level, on the banks of the Mississippi,and they don't have flood insurance?
What the Hell were they thinking?
