NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu says the city is ready to face Tropical Storm Isaac.

Noting that Isaac should arrive at the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Landrieu said Monday that officials feel very good about the ability to cope with Isaac.

Landrieu, who declared a state of emergency on Sunday, urged about 900 residents who live outside levee protection in eastern New Orleans evacuate. The remainder of the city is not under an evacuation order.

He told residents to hunker down and make due with supplies on hand.

Katrina struck on Aug. 29, 2005.
