WASHINGTON -- CBS is reporting that President Barack Obama has signed a disaster declaration for the state of Louisiana.

The move opens the way for federal funds to flow into the state for recovery efforts.

At a campaign stop earlier in the night, Obama asked for prayers for those affected by the storm.

"There are no Democrats or Republicans," he said. "There are just Americans."
