NEW ORLEANS (AP) Louisiana officials say an estimated 60,000 homes have been damaged by massive flooding that swept through the southern part of the state.

Mike Steele, spokesman for the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said Saturday that 102,000 people have also registered for federal assistance.

He says authorities are still assessing damage to homes and that number could fluctuate.

The state is slowly digging itself out from a massive flood that swept through last weekend.

Commissioner Jay Dardenne announced Saturday that state offices in all parishes are reopening on Monday.
