Open Story: Isaac soaks Gulf Coast

(CNN) -- Isaac made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane on Tuesday evening. The storm weakened to a tropical storm Wednesday, but officials warned that the Gulf Coast will have to endure many more hours of pounding rain. Isaac is expected to follow the path Hurricane Katrina took seven years ago.

Since the storm in 2005, New Orleans’ levee system has had $10 billion in improvements, and the city's pump stations have backup generators ready in case of electrical outages. Isaac could bring 14 inches of rain to the region, and as much as 20 inches are possible, the hurricane center said.

 

If Hurricane Isaac has affected the area where you live, CNN and iReport want to hear your story. Share your stories, photos and videos and be part of the Open Story.

 

Please note: The weather is often unpredictable and sometimes dangerous. Do not expose yourself to a risky or potentially dangerous situation.
