US Gulf Coast Copes With Aftermath Of Hurricane Isaac

BRAITHWAITE, LA - SEPTEMBER 03: Melanie Martinez holds the family cat, which they have renamed Isaac, as they salvage items from their flooded home in Plaquemines Parish on September 3, 2012 in Braithwaite, Louisiana. Martinez, along with her husband and her mother, was forced to ride out the storm in the home when their car broke down. The house quickly flooded and they were rescued by a neighbor who was able to break into their attic to save them. They only were able to rescue Isaac today who survived six days without food at the flooded home. Their previous home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Damage totals from the hurricane could top $2 billion and more than 125,000 customers are still without power six days after the storm made landfall. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
