Half of New Orleans Without Power

It may not be a hurricane anymore, but Isaac’s wrath is still being felt. More than half of New Orleans is without power on Saturday, while the storm moved north up the Mississippi River and caused at least two tornadoes in northern Illinois. Power company Entergy New Orleans's CEO, Charles Rice, said on Saturday that that he expects 70 percent of customers affected would have power back by Monday and 90 percent would have it restored by Wednesday. Authorities ordered evacuations in a “fairly rural” portion along Louisiana’s Pearl River on Saturday, warning the locks could fail.
