It just wouldn't be a hurricane without power outages.
Hurricane Isaac has knocked out power to more than 200,000 homes and businesses along the Gulf coast with 80 mph winds, and that's probably just the start.
Isaac is a massive, slow-moving storm that spans almost 200 miles from its center. It made landfall shortly before 7 p.m. CDT near the mouth of the Mississippi River, about 75 southeast of New Orleans. The storm's center is expected to eventually move west of New Orleans and north toward Baton Rouge.
The storm made landfall Tuesday evening on the eve of the seventh anniversary of when Hurricane Katrina devastated the region.

While not as powerful as Katrina, Isaac threatens to flood the coasts of four states with storm surge and heavy rains on its way to New Orleans, where residents have been hunkering down behind levees fortified after Katrina struck.
