Not everyone on the Gulf Coast affected by Isaac has been able to start picking up the pieces yet.

As the remnants of Hurricane Isaac pushed their way up the Mississippi valley, some on the Gulf Coast were impatient with the pace of restoring power days after the storm dragged through the region. And many evacuees still can’t get home because of floodwaters.

While New Orleans streets were bustling again and workers were returning to offshore oil rigs, more than 400,000 sweltering electricity customers in the state remained without power.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service said two tornadoes touched down in rural areas of north-central Illinois and at least two touched down in rural southeast Missouri.

The weather service said the storm would bring some drought relief to parts of the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys.
