Isaac's aftermath

Associated Press
Isaac's winds and storm surge overcomes the seawall and floods the intersection of Nicholson Ave. and Beach Boulevard in Waveland, Miss., Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012, the seventh  anniversary of Hurricane Katrina hitting the Gulf Coast.  Isaac was packing 80 mph winds, making it a Category 1 hurricane. It came ashore early Tuesday near the mouth of the Mississippi River, driving a wall of water nearly 11 feet high inland and soaking a neck of land that stretches into the Gulf. The storm stalled for several hours before resuming a slow trek inland, and forecasters said that was in keeping with the its erratic history. The slow motion over land means Isaac could be a major soaker, dumping up to 20 inches of rain in some areas. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)

Tens of thousands of customers remained in the dark on Sept. 3 in Louisiana and Mississippi, nearly a week after Isaac inundated the Gulf Coast with a deluge that still has some low-lying areas under water.
