Hurricane Isaac hits Louisiana in the USA

New Orleans in the United States is experiencing a hurricane exactly seven years after Hurricane Katrina which devastated vast areas and left a lasting impact on the region. Since that time new flood defences have been erected and existing ones reinforced. However, the region was still on high alert as Hurricane Isaac passed through.
