The gulf is churning large waves and white foam on Alabama's coast and the wind from Isaac is still whistling around buildings. But beachfront walkways and other structures along the shore appear intact.

Lights are still on Wednesday morning in Orange Beach and a few cars are traveling the beach road. Louisiana took the brunt of Isaac after the hurricane shifted west and gave Alabama only a glancing blow.

Officials in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are still watching to see whether the heavy surf will deposit oil left by the BP oil spill on gulf beaches. Alabama officials expect some tar balls to be dredged up by Isaac, and they will assess the beaches as the weather improves.
