One Year Since Isaac

One Year Since Isaac

One year ago today, Hurricane Isaac tortured the Caribbean and the Northern Gulf Coast. Not only did the hurricane pass over Southeast Louisiana but it was a slow moving storm – making the ordeal last longer and longer. Everyone was shouting at the storm to move along but it wouldn’t listen and continued to pour rain and whip its strong winds. Park buildings were spared major damage but some Park equipment was lost and many trees were left leaning, uprooted, or completely destroyed. Through the hard work of Park staff and volunteers, it was possible to reopen the Park only days after Isaac’s initial landfall.
