Normally this time of year during the week preceding Labor Day Alabamians are getting excited and preparing for the return of a most favored past-time – College Football.  This week all eye's have been "off the ball," as we all continue to monitor Hurricane Isaac developments.

While we in Alabama are not completely out of the woods on this one with rain, flooding and tornadoes remaining a concern, those in New Orleans are shaking their heads in disbelief as Isaac makes a bee line for their city with an expected landfall on Wednesday – 7 years to the day when Katrina hit.

There are some important lessons learned from Katrina that those in New Orleans and we in Alabama are implementing now.  Lessons such as having a plan - essential in making good decisions during crisis, preparation, having strong leadership and follow through.  Because as we know all too well in Alabama that when the storm is over the work has just begun. 

We hope and pray that everyone in the storm's path will remain safe and we at WSFA 12 News are committed to helping in whatever way we can – before, during and after the storm.
