On the evening of August 28th, 2012, the eye of Hurricane Isaac made landfall in Plaquemines Parish. Isaac, a category 1 storm, spanned nearly 200 miles from its center. Storm surges climbed over 12 feet and wind gusts up to 113 miles per hour for over 24 hours. On September 3rd, residents were allowed to return home to survey the damage of the catastrophe.
