Locals along the Gulf Coast starting the recovery process and beginning to cleanup after being struck by Isaac. President Obama visiting Louisiana on Monday ahead of the Democratic National Convention to meet with local officials and tour Isaac-related storm damage.

FOX News Radio's Courtney Kealy has details on the cleanup:

Days after Isaac pummeled Louisiana and Mississippi with torrential rains and heavy winds thousands remain without power and thousands of evacuees have been unable to return to their homes yet.

Plaquemines Parish, a vulnerable finger of land that juts in to the Gulf of Mexico, was hit hard by Isaac. Parish President Billy Nungesser saying for some it was worse than Hurricane Katrina.

(Nungesser) "Debris this thick. It's full of snakes, rodents. You know we had a serious staff infection during the last storm. People are going to get cut and get hurt."

At least seven people were killed in the storm, five in Louisiana and two in Mississippi.
