Lainy Serpas, 11, lowers her head into her lap as she tours her flooded community for the first time, after Hurricane Isaac passed through in Braithwaite, La., Saturday, Sept. 1, 2012. While New Orleans streets were bustling again and workers were returning to offshore oil rigs, thousands of evacuees couldn't return home to flooded low-lying areas of Louisiana and more than 400,000 sweltering electricity customers in the state remained without power.
