Fewer than 100 people are staying in a shelter in Shreveport, forced from their homes in New Orleans as Hurricane Isaac slams Louisiana's coast. Two are women who fled Hurricane Katrina nearly seven years ago to the day.
Despite recently weakening to a tropical storm, the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Isaac continue through Wednesday afternoon. The storm has dumped more than ten inches of rain across the area and left at least 725,000 homes without power.
Seven years ago, New Orleans experienced Katrina. Now, Hurricane Isaac is here and has already caused problems. To get an idea of what this storm is packing, take a look at these photos and please be safe when the rain arrives in the ArkLaTex.
Shreveport and Bossier City officials are ramping up their preparations for the arrival of Isaac here -- probably tomorrow afternoon and evening. Sand bags are being made available to residents of both cities.
Emergency response officials are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best as Tropical Storm Isaac picks up strength in the Gulf of Mexico. There is one shelter already open in the Ark-La-Tex with other locations on standby as needed. We have shelter information as well as volunteer information for you.
All flights in to and out of New Orleans have been cancelled as of Tuesday, August 27 due to Tropical Storm Isaac. Flight cancellations were released by American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines.
The City of Shreveport is doing everything possible to prepare for the storm. A news release from the Mayor's Office says Fire, Police, Public Works, and Water and Sewer personnel are standing by to respond to any emergencies.
