      Hurricane Isaac overflows levee, flooding expected

      The National Weather Service warned early Wednesday that heavy rainfall across metropolitan New Orleans and nearby coastal communities will likely result in flash floods.

      Officials are reporting "overtopping of a levee on the east bank" from Braithwaite to White Ditch, which will "result in significant deep flooding in the area," the National Weather Service said early Wednesday.

      Hurricane Isaac made its second landfall west of Port Fourchon in southeast Louisiana, the National Hurricane Center said.

      More than 200,000 Entergy Louisiana customers were without power as of 10:33 p.m. ET Tuesday due to Hurricane Isaac, the utility reported on its website.

      Hurricane Isaac made landfall early Tuesday evening according to the National Hurricane Center.

      Meanwhile here in Mid-Michigan, the remnants of the storm could affect us over Labor Day weekend.
