Warning to Gulf Residents: Take This Seriously

Ad Feedback

Disaster relief officials are on standby on the Gulf Coast as Hurricane Isaac makes its way toward the region Tuesday.

"As we prepare for Isaac to hit, I want to encourage local residents of the Gulf Coast to listen to your local officials and follow their directions, including if they tell you to evacuate," President Obama said in a statement.

"We're dealing with a big storm, and there could be significant flooding and other damage across a large area," he warned. "Now's not the time to tempt fate. Now's not the time to dismiss official warnings. You need to take this seriously."

No stranger to hurricanes, CBN's Operation Blessing International is currently positioned outside New Orleans to offer assistance to the city's residents.

Jody Gettys, director of U.S. Disaster Relief for Operation Blessing, talked more about the charity's plan of action and what residents can expect once the storm clears, on CBN's Newswatch, Aug. 28.  Click play to watch.
