With power mostly restored now – and apologies to those still waiting, this will be our final update in our New Orleans After Isaac  series. Hurricane Isaac was a Category 1 hurricane. By wind speed, it was barely even that strong, with top sustained winds of 80 mph. It moved slowly and brought more rainfall than is typical of a storm of this magnitude. For the most part New Orleans homes and businesses lost power for several days to one week.
