Sean Hannity is taking his Fox News program on the road to Baton Rogue, La., on Monday night.

The network says the host of "Hannity" plans to cover the latest on historic flood devastation throughout the state. Interviews are also planned with flood victims and local leaders dealing with the situation. The program airs at 10 p.m.


Baton Rogue officials estimate the damage at $20.7 billion. Thirty-one percent of homes in the Baton Rogue area alone have some kind of water damage, meaning approximately 110,000 homes have been effected.

More than 100,000 Louisiana residents have applied for federal aid. Thirteen people have died, while 30,000 needed to be rescued.

The Hannity special comes on the heels of Donald TrumpDonald TrumpSenators given no timeline on removal of National Guard, Capitol fence Democratic fury with GOP explodes in House Georgia secretary of state withholds support for 'reactionary' GOP voting bills MORE's visit to the region on Friday, which was praised by Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) for "shining a spotlight" on flood recovery.

The New York Times recently reported that Hannity was informally advising Trump on his campaign. Hannity didn't deny the allegation, stating the GOP presidential nominee is a friend and that he would be candid with him about his campaign.

"Do I talk to my friend who I've known for years and speak my mind?" Hannity told the Times's Jim Rutenberg. "I can't not speak my mind."

President Obama has been criticized for not cutting his Martha's Vineyard vacation short to visit the region.

The commander in chief — who also hasn't issued any public statement on the devastation — finished his annual vacation Sunday and will visit the state on Tuesday.
