Pat Shingleton: "Isaac Replaced Allison..."

7 months ago Wednesday, August 27, 2014 3:46:26 PM CDT August 27, 2014 Wednesday, August 27 2014 Aug 27, 2014 in Pat Shingleton Column

Residents of LaPlace remember this date in 2012. Four storms have impacted the Baton Rouge area. Andrew in 1992 shut down our city and Katrina's devastation transported thousands of folks to Baton Rouge. Gustav was the worst storm to hit the city and is known as the hurricane that toppled more trees than any other in history. Six months after the storm, tree removal processing continued. Two years ago, Hurricane Isaac made landfall at 6:45 PM at the Mouth of the Mississippi River then beached again the following morning southeast of Houma. It was the ninth tropical cyclone of the season and the fourth hurricane of 2012. Isaac's storm surge and rain replaced Tropical Storm Allison as the worst flooding storm to hit our area and LaPlace.
