AMERICA : OVER 800000 AFFECTED BY HURRICANE ISAAC IN 6 STATES



HURRICANE ISAAC has affected over 800000 over 5 states. This hurricane came down on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 as a Category 1 and has had winds at 60 mph.

Thousands are stranded by flooding. The National Guard is involved in transporting thousands from their homes to shelters. Mississippi, Louisiana and New Orleans are among the worst damages. Looting is also a problem as flooding damages stores. In Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Arkansas there are over 800000 without power. Due to the last fatal hurricane Katrina, where 1,800 died, new levees were built in New Orleans that have protected many in this new storm.
