HURRICANE ISAAC HITS THE COAST.
Residents of New Orleans waited out another storm just hours shy of the seventh anniversary of the devastating Hurricane Katrina.
Isaac's approach left deserted streets from New Orleans' famous French Quarter to Tampa 480 miles away, where Republicans at their party's national convention pressed on with only a passing mention of the storm's arrival.
A Category 1 hurricane with winds at 80 mph, Isaac came ashore near the mouth of the Mississippi River in south-eastern Louisiana. But the worst was still to come as the slow-moving storm chugged along on a track that would take it just west of New Orleans, roughly 70 miles to the north.
