STONEWALL, La., March 11 (UPI) -- A trio of Louisiana men made the best of the state's severe flooding by climbing into a small boat and going fishing on the highway.

A video posted to YouTube by NZP Storm Chasers shows three locals near Stonewall, La., boating down Interstate 49 March 10 in the search of some fish on the flooded road.

Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Thursday up to 750 Louisiana National Guard members have been authorized to help residents in flooded areas of the state.

"We're moving resources as fast as possible," Edwards said.
