Hurricane Isaac caused wide spread flooding in LaPlace, Louisiana sending Kaelen Washington, 7, front, Nadi Hart holding Madison Picou, 1, and Kiana Washington to flee their home. The family members were at a shelter waiting to see if friends could put them up for the night. The state sent scores of buses and dozens of high-water vehicles to help evacuate about 3,000 people from St. John the Baptist Parish after Tropical Storm Isaac pushed water from lakes Pontchartrain and Maurepas into parts of LaPlace.
