photos - tropical storm isaac - part 6

As the storm approached some precautions were taken. Large billboards were removed.
The UN was keeping an eye on the Palais Nationale and the Champ Mars.
There was hardly anyone downtown. We made quick time traveling around the city.
The broken Palais Nationale will be removed starting in the next week or two. Sean Penn's organization will be doing the demolition work.
We stopped by to visit our gatekeeper Yonel and his family. They weathered the storm well and didn't have flooding in their neighborhood. The canal functioned well draining away the rain waters.
