The Wall Street Journal U.S. - Isaac dumped more than a foot of rain on parts of the Gulf Coast Wednesday, leaving some residents stranded and hundreds of thousands of homes without power. A storm surge overtopped a levee in Plaquemines Parish, a rural area southwest of New Orleans with about 25,000 residents, which bore the brunt of Isaac’s fury. The surge filled up a neighborhood with as much as 12 feet of water. More than 100 people had to be rescued, some of whom had been stranded in their attics or on their roofs. Late Wednesday, authorities were working to evacuate as many as 3,000 residents in Louisiana’s St. John the Baptist Parish after flooding triggered by a storm surge in Lake Ponchartrain and Lake Maurepas. - Go To Story
