Since this was mentioned, one can't help but ponder the question of the timing of this 'tropical storm'.

Could this just be an effort to get people's emotions involved & show the american people that Obama and his crew truly love the american people, unlike Bush who left them stranded and with no aide for about a week to ensure that he get's the vote of most of those who are still unsure?

i know some of us have thought about this, if only briefly. I mean, they're still lying to us about Katrina....

Are they purposely playing with people's lives AGAIN just to boost his ratings before the 'selection'?

... Its over, maybe:

The remainder of the storm was still a powerful system packing rain and the threat of flash flooding as it headed across Arkansas into Missouri and then up the Ohio River valley over the weekend, the National Weather Service said.
Labor Day plans were already taking a hit.


Waters recede in Louisiana, leaving sopping mess

BELLE CHASE, La. (AP) — Floodwaters from Isaac receded, power came on and businesses opened Friday ahead of the holiday weekend, the beginning of what is certain to be a slow recovery forLouisiana.
Newly-nominated Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneyvisited flood-ravaged communities, and President Barack Obamasaid he would arrive Monday, appearances this part of the country is all too familiar with after Katrina and the Gulf oil spill.

... The Domino effect:


What's left of Isaac has been plodding north into states that badly need moisture. The worst drought in decades stretches from Ohio west to California. Isaac will move straight through some of the hardest hit states: Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. Lesser rain is expected to the west in portions of Oklahoma and Kansas.



Isaac promises drought relief, lousy holiday

ST. LOUIS (AP) — When drought made Fourth of July fireworks a fire hazard, organizers in Chesterfield, Mo., decided to try again Labor Day weekend. Go figure: Now rain from the remnants ofHurricane Isaac has forced them to cancel again.
The storm is expected to drop several inches of rain over parts of the Midwest this weekend, and residents are preparing for a soggy holiday with mixed emotions. People in drought-stricken areas have been begging, pleading and praying for rain. But did it have to ruin the end-of-summer party?

... The aftermath continues:



More than 2,800 people were at shelters in Louisiana, down from around 4,000. State officials were uncertain how many people would eventually need longer-term temporary housing. Kevin Davis, head of the state's emergency office, said housing would likely include hotels at first, then rental homes as close as possible to their damaged property.


Days after Isaac, thousands still in the dark

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tens of thousands of customers remained in the dark Monday in Louisiana and Mississippi, nearly a week after Isaac inundated the Gulf Coast with a deluge that still has some low-lying areas under water.
Most of those were in Louisiana, where utilities reported more than 100,000 people without power. Thousands also were without power in Mississippi and Arkansas.
