Patrons drink outside a French Quarter bar during Tropical Storm Isaac in New Orleans
Patrons drink outside a French Quarter bar as wind and rain brought by Tropical Storm Isaac continue in New Orleans, Louisiana August 29, 2012. Isaac dumped heavy rains on the U.S. Gulf Coast and caused widespread flooding on Wednesday, but elaborate defenses built to protect New Orleans after the 2005 Hurricane Katrina disaster withstood the onslaught.
