Residents carry belongings from the west end of the island as the roads are closed from 3-4 feet of sand covering the road in Dauphin Island, Ala. on Thursday, Aug. 30, 2012. Isaac dumped as much as 4 feet of sand on roads on Dauphin Island, but damage isn't bad otherwise. Mayor Jeff Collier said Thursday no homes were destroyed on the coastal barrier, even at its vulnerable western end. Crews in tractors are moving sand off the streets. Collier says conditions may have been worse without a 3.5-mile-long sand pile that was built during the BP oil spill. He says the berm helped stop sand that would have wound up on streets and in sewers without it. (AP Photo/Butch Dill) less
