article imageVideo: Aftermath of Isaac south of New Orleans

By Anne Sewell     Aug 31, 2012 in World
New Orleans - The video shows the aftermath left by Hurricane Isaac as it hit the New Orleans area on Tuesday, and pushed water over the 18-mile levee.
Dozens of homes are surrounded by water and the flood also unearthed caskets, and uprooted trees, at a local cemetery.
The aerial footage shows the devastation, with houses submerged to their rafters in water.
Isaac has now been downgraded to a tropical depression, and the extent of the damage caused by the storm is becoming clearer.
Crews in air boats in LaPlace saw dirty water and heavy mud caking homes, trailers and street signs. The crews saved cows and other livestock from the debris.
People evacuated from the town are being ferried by buses to various shelters. Many of them have lost everything they own, other than what they could carry in the minutes before they evacuated.
