Tropical Storm Isaac could hit New Orleans early as Tuesday

GULF COAST -- It will be seven years to the day that Hurricane Katrina pounded the Gulf Coast and left many parts of New Orleans underwater.

Experts believe that Tropical Storm Isaac could hit New Orleans on Tuesday. The seventh anniversary of Katrina and many residents are still cleaning up.

Residents could face yet another disaster. And state and local officials are urging residents to take precaution.

"The slow moving nature of this storm means that there are many parts of our state that can be inundate with tropical storm or heavier winds or heavy rainfall for several, several hours at a time," Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said.

Jindal also says he will not be attending the Republican National Convention because of the storm.

The storm has already claimed an estimated 24 lives in Haiti and the Dominican Republican.
