Hurricane Isaac

Unfortunately for me, I live in southern Louisiana, but my family lives even further south. Why is this unfortunate you ask? Because of all the hurricanes. I love living in Louisiana and wouldn't change it for the world. I'll probably leave for a small time period but I'll always return. It's my home and the place where I feel most comfortable.

Now, back to the hurricanes. Now when Isaac was coming I was like...what this little thing? I was born a really short amount of time before Hurricane Andrew, survived through Hurricane Katrina and Rita when they hit back to back and the last one we got that did lots of damage was Hurricane Gustav. I'm no stranger to Hurricanes and how they can impact our surroundings. But I saw Isaac coming and didn't even blink an eye.

My dad immediately texted me telling me to go get supplies and what did I do? Took a nap only to have the sorority house close not too long after I woke up. I headed to my friends house and hung out there for a little bit. My dad quickly called me home, kind of frustrated that I only had 1/8 of a tank of gas left.

Once Isaac hit, there was no gong anywhere. We lost power almost immediately and didn't get it back for four days. Isaac wasn't a very powerful storm when it came to where I live, but where my family lives is a different story.

Some of my extended family lives in LaPlace, which is where Isaac hit the hardest. We got in touch with everyone, and quickly found out that no major damage was done and that everyone was okay. Such a scary moment in life, considering the fact we went through Katrina not too long ago. While much of LaPlace was under water, my family's home survived. No flooding or any damage that they could see at the time.

I love Louisiana and wouldn't change it for the world. But hurricanes will always make me nervous.

Have you ever been through a hurricane or another awful natural disaster?
