The heavy rains caused about a dozen caskets to float from their gravesites.
Loved ones of those buried there rushed to the cemetery and prevented them from floating away, using sandbags to weigh them down.
Others opted to move the caskets to higher ground.
Parts of the parish -- about 50 miles south of Baton Rouge -- got nearly 10 inches of rain.
