I just posted in the the front page diary the link but thought others might want to stay abreast of what's going on, especially as Isaac seems to have stalled over New Orleans and there's area's now getting much more water, flooding, then would be expected.

Had this on yesterday afternoon and evening and have had it on most of this morning, real good way to keep abreast and especially if you know folks in that area!

Drop below:

This is a real good Live Stream directly from NOLA that runs without commercials but does break off every once in awhile, sometimes they do it for several minutes then it comes right back on other times the buffering takes it down and you need to refresh, but has been staying up for long periods either way.

The storm has Stalled, they give weather updates  as well as talking to First Responders or reporters, via phones most of the time, in the different parishes as well as taking calls from some residents.

A couple of the callers are saying they're flooded out and in their attics with holes cut waiting on when rescues can be made. Most say they stayed because it was a Cat 1 and they didn't have problems, flooding etc., during Katrina, so they thought, wrong, this one wouldn't be as bad.

But the rain that came with and the stalling are doing allot of damage not expected!

They also reported a short time ago that they've been getting reports about a number of barges that are now only tied up with one rope and could break at anytime. One barge was reported to have broken it's ties last night and crashed into a number of boats sinking a couple.

The pictures they're getting tell the story along with their reporting.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
