In this Aug. 30, 2012 photo, cattle are seen stranded on floating debris in floodwaters after Hurricane Isaac came through the region, in Plaquemines Parish, La. Hurricane Isaac turned some of the best ranch land in Louisiana into a miles-long pond of blackish and foul-smelling floodwaters. Snakes, birds and a lot of the livestock raised here by a handful of ranching families drowned in Isaac's storm surge, which overwhelmed the weak levees protecting this farm country south of New Orleans.
