Even as the slow recovery begins in Louisiana, people displaced by Hurricane Isaac face frustration,
exhaustion and uncertainty.

Meanwhile the remnants of Isaac remain a strong storm system that could bring some drought relief to parts of the Midwest, at the expense of holiday weekend plans.

Isaac will move straight through some of the hardest hit states: Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.
