Isaac 2012

Remember Isaac 2012.

Plaquemines has not recovered.

A slow moving TS would do the same damage now.

Isaac showed that NOLA will save itself.....

at the expense of everything surrounding it.

Plaquemines after Hurricane Isaac: A year later, residents redefine what home means

http://www.nola.com/environment/index.ssf/2013/08/plaquemines_after_hurricane_is_3.html

"As Isaac’s anniversary approaches Wednesday, Braithwaite’s residents continue to face gargantuan challenges, including worries over new, sky-high flood insurance rates and uncertainty about elevation aid that has been promised but still is pending approval.

Braithwaite is not alone in its predicament. LaPlace in St. John the Baptist Parish and parts of Slidell and Mandeville in St. Tammany Parish also were pummeled by Isaac, a Category 1 storm that meandered along Southeast Louisiana, making two landfalls and bringing a 11-foot surge in some areas.

The storm first landed near the mouth of the Mississippi River at 7 p.m. on Aug. 28. But for many metro area communities, the worst came after Isaac made its second landfall near Port Fourchon at 3 a.m. on Aug. 29. "
