Isaac Drowns Louisiana

Rescue workers save residents trapped by rising water from Hurricane Isaac in LaPlace, La., on August 29. The slow-moving Level 1 hurricane dumped huge amounts of rain and knocked out power to Louisianans in parts of the state. Isaac also brought heavy rains to Florida during the Republican National Convention this year.
