The wrath of Hurricane Isaac is being felt all along the Gulf Coast. We are getting reports that levees are failing around the Mississippi River, and thousands are being evacuated. Isaac has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but that doesn’t mean that anyone is out of harms way. According to CNN, the National Weather Service has warned people that major flooding is still an impact.

The flooding from the storms rain is out of control around the area of Tangiapoha River in Louisiana, and many families are being air lifted out of the area.

Animals are also currently being evacuated, and more than 40,000 have spent the night in Red Cross facilities around the Gulf Coast. Keep up with live updates from the hurricane, here.
