Via Reuters: Hurricane Isaac has caused up to $1 billion in economic losses for offshore energy properties and up to $1.5 billion in insured losses onshore in Louisiana and neighboring states, disaster modeler Eqecat said on Wednesday.

Within days, OBR volunteers from neighboring states were on the scene setting up in St. Bernard Parish and teaming up with Operation Blessing International. Several days later, a second location was opened in Louisiana as well as a location in Mississippi. After 11 days, 49,000 meals were served in Louisiana, and an additional 6000 meals were served in six days in Mississippi for a total of 55,000.
