Today, I got power back. So with that I write this blog.

INTRODUCTION

Although Isaac made its final landall on August 29, 2012, the effects that Louisiana felt were much different. As Isaac approached landfall it began to throw water into Lake Pontchartrain with an east wind. Pumping constant water into the lake at a high rate. As it passed 90 west and moved northwestward it began to push all of the water to the northern shores of lake pontchartrain. Towns such as Mandeville, Madisonville, and Slidell took on significant amounts of water. In the end, St. Tammany Parish would take on a minimum of 9 feet of storm surge. After the brunt of the storm came through and the power went out, My family went for a "joy ride" around the city and here is some of the devestation.

sorry but they uploaded wrong, you may need to look sideways!

RECOVERY

The greater New Orleans area is still recovering, Orleans Parish still has 140,000 people with no power and the flood waters are just now receeding.
