Hurricane Isaac nears New Orleans

Hurricane Issac nears New Orleans

New Orleans is getting in a defensive mode as Hurricane Isaac is beating the city with strong winds and drenching rain.

Louisiana city is currently under attack exactly seven years after the devastating Hurricane Katrina. Thankfully Issac is not as strong as Katrina.

Sea water has already crossed the safe levels in the  southern part of the city.


    • In Atlantic Ocean when a Tropical storm reaches a speed of 39 miles per hour it is given a name. Hurricanes are not named. But when a tropical storm converts to a Hurricane it retains the name. So Issac started off as a tropical storm and converted into a hurricane later.
