Gulf coast states continue to deal with the impact of Isaac. Many areas are still under water and the death toll is rising.

The death toll from this week’s storm has risen to four after rescuers searching a flooded neighborhood in Plaquemines Parish discovered the bodies of an elderly couple in their home.  

Meanwhile, crews in Mississippi are relieving pressure on a damaged dam on a lake swollen by Isaac’s heavy rains.  They’re hoping a controlled release of water will prevent the dam from breaking, but just to be safe, Louisiana authorities are evacuating neighborhoods downstream along the Tangipahoa River.
