Seven years to the day after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, Hurricane Isaac came ashore along the Louisiana coast as a category 1 hurricane with sustained winds of 75 miles per hour and a dangerous storm surge.
The Church released this statement:
“Prior to the storm, local leaders were in contact with Church members to make necessary preparations. Missionaries in the New Orleans area were moved inland as a precaution. The Church continues to monitor the situation and is prepared to respond as needed.”
