HURRICANE ISAAC SLAMS NEW ORLEANS
Hurricane Isaac has hit New Orleans, exactly 7 years after Hurricane Katrina devastated the City. Issac pushed water over one levee and knocked out power to half a million people in 4 states and it's not done yet. It's moving slowly inland from the Gulf of Mexico and threatens dangerous storm surge and flooding all day. We'll have team coverage this morning on Sunrise with Dan Cooke and Meteorologist Jennifer Robbins tracking Isaac and its impact, Howard Dicus following travel delays, and a live talkback with reporters on the Gulf Coast. Don't forget you can always follow what's happening with our exclusive Hurricane tracker.
