This Labor Day many South Mississippi residents will spend time cleaning up their yards and making repairs to the damage Hurricane Isaac caused. While Hurricane Isaac was not in the same category as Katrina, the Hurricane will result in millions of dollars worth of damage in South Mississippi. At least one death has been attributed to Isaac.
The Hurricane turned out to be worse than many of us had hoped. However we are glad to report that it appears most coast residents took the storm seriously. Thousands of residents who could not evacuate went to storm shelters, riding out Isaac in a safe place.
Hundreds of emergency personnel worked throughout the storm making sure all of us were as safe as possible, and our thanks go out to them. They were out in the middle of the storm taking care of emergencies as they arose.
It's going to take some time and effort, but our hope is that our Mississippi Gulf Coast will soon be able to return to the beautiful place it is.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post your comments below.
