Hurricane Isaac has left a "soggy mess" in Louisiana, where several neighborhoods were submerged underwater and homes were without electricity and clean water. The storm dumped up to 16 inches of rain in the area and about 500 residents had to be rescued by boats or water vehicles. At least four people died in Louisiana and Mississippi. The storm may still trigger tornadoes in Mississippi and Louisiana, according to the National Hurricane Center.
