If you live in the state of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, or Texas you probably have been keeping a close eye on the news for any updates on Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac. As of now Isaac is only a Tropical Storm with wind speeds of up to 70 MPH, but as time passes and we reach Tuesday evening on August 28th it is supposed to be upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane and that’s not even the most shocking part of it. When Wednesday August 29th arrives, the storm is as of now scheduled to make landfall in the state of Louisiana. Why is this date so important?
August 29, 2012 marks the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina making landfall in the state of Louisiana. This news has sent shock waves throughout the community in the city of New Orleans who not only are remembering the events of 7 years ago, but now have to worry about another threat looming over their shoulders as this dark anniversary approaches.
The residents of Louisiana should be kept updated on the upcoming storm. Residents should check the weather forecast and know what the evacuation routes are. The people should know to only take what is needed and be ready to leave the city if an emergency arises.
