Many People In New Orleans Lose Their House For A Second Time, Must Have Relocated To State Of Denial

Authorities say a quarter of a million customers are still without power in Louisiana and Mississippi, days after Isaac struck the Gulf Coast.

Most of those were in Louisiana, where utilities reported nearly 240,000 people without power as of Monday morning. More than 11,000 were without power in Mississippi.

Meanwhile, inspectors from the Federal Emergency Management Agency are out trying to get a handle on losses. FEMA opened a recovery center in Pascagoula, and officials say more centers could open in the coming days.

Many people who rebuilt in the same flood plain following the last flood, rebuilt in  state of denial.
