Isaac lashes Louisiana

Flooding in Laplace, Louisiana, USA from Hurricane Isaac, 30 August 2012 (Times-Picuyne)

Louisiana got the worst of Hurricane Isaac with howling wind and heavy rain but New Orleans was mostly spared on the seventh anniversary of Katrina.

Isaac stalled for several hours before resuming a slow trek inland as a tropical storm.

The slow motion over land meant Isaac was a major soaker dumping up to 500 millimetres of rain in some areas. 

Only one death was reported from the storm in the United States but at least 24 were killed in Haiti.
