Isaac has been downgraded to a tropical storm but is still dropping heavy rains on the Gulf states and cause many to lose power. Homes were flooded this morning in Plaquemines Parish as the water topped the 12-foot levee.  Below are links to video and photos of the storm surge and rescues that occurred today.
