The storm has passed, but cleanup is nowhere near complete in Louisiana. That's where Springfield-based Convoy of Hope has been since before Isaac made landfall.
Spokesman Jeff Nene says they kept a close eye on not only the storm's category, but it's real-world impact. "Isaac brought so much water ashore, in the form of rain and storm surge, that there were hundreds of thousands without power in that area. So our response changed, and has been changing daily", says Nene.
"We're actually set up right across the street [in Slidell] from where we were after Hurricane Katrina seven years ago. We've worked with some of the same people, and are helping some of the same people."
