This video of Hurricane Isaac was shot in New Orleans, LA August 28-29, 2012 where I was able to capture city enhanced wind gusts over 100 mph along with intense rain. Most of what you see takes places in the CBD (Central Business District) and the French Quarter.
The video starts out with some sights around town as the squally weather begins and birds take refuge at Cafe Du Monde. After dark the winds begin to really howl so take notice of the intensity of the sound along with the ferocity of the winds. Shooting at night you can watch sheets of rain being pushed through the buildings and swirling in the streets with the city lights making it all possible. Just when you think it cant get any more intense, it does. Also, look out for the drunk people walking down Canal Street that almost get run over by a flying sign. The video ends on the afternoon of August 29th scouting the city, heading over Lake Pontchartrain on I-10 with the surge crashing against the gaurdrail, and ultimetly in Mississippi near Bay Saint Louis where the storm surge still reached the interstate. Photos follow the live action starting with a homeless woman stuck riding out the hurricane at a bus stop with an umbrella along with some damage shots.
