Charity Giving Hot Meals, Supplies to Isaac Victims

Ad Feedback

Hurricane Isaac's devastation is beginning to fade from the headlines, but many Gulf Coast residents are suffering badly.
CBN's Operation Blessing International is still reaching into devastated areas where exhausted residents and emergency workers have received little aid. 
The charity is now serving hot meals in towns like LaPlace, La., in east Plaquemins Parish.

Jody Gettys, director of US Disaster Relief for Operation Blessing, is still in the area leading relief efforts.

She said her team has served nearly 13,000 meals so far in the region.

Gettys spoke more about what Operation Blessing is doing to help residents affected by Hurricane Isaac, on the CBN Newschannel Morning show, Sept. 5.  Click play to watch.

Meanwhile, what's left of the storm is soaking the Northeast, with many areas seeing a record amount of rainfall. Forecasters say the rain will continue for the next few days.
In New Jersey, remnants of Isaac led to a powerful storm in Camden County, where people spotted a funnel cloud.

"The whole second floor started shaking. The shutters, everything was shaking," resident Keith Kelly told Philadelphia television station KYW.

"It sounded like a freight train," Mt. Ephraim resident Ed Parvin recalled. "It was just unbelievable."
Weather experts warn that other storms are gaining strength over the Atlantic. Tropical Storm Leslie is on a track that could take it towards Bermuda.
