GRISLY photos have emerged showing COFFINS floating down a Louisiana street.

They come as the US state is engulfed by heavy rainfall that has left at least five people dead.

Local resident Anna Johnson took the grim snap in Denham Springs, near the devastated state capital Baton Rouge.

She described the freak flooding as “worse than Hurricane Katrina”, the 2005 disaster that wreaked havoc in the state, particularly in New Orleans.

As much as 11 inches of rain fell on Baton Rouge in just 24 hours, with 17 inches of rain reported in nearby Livingstone.
