NEW ORLEANS — Much of Plaquemines Parish was still covered with flood water Sunday and more than 200,000 people across Louisiana still did not have any power, five days after Isaac ravaged the state. Thousands of evacuees remained at shelters or bunked with friends or relatives. At least seven people were killed by the storm — five in Louisiana and two in Mississippi.
President Obama is to visit Louisiana on Monday, a day before the Democratic National Convention. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney visited the state Friday.
