Plaquemines Parish homeowners flooded by Hurricane Isaac still struggle to return a year later.
Parish President Billy Nungesser joined the FOX 8 morning news to talk about what continues to be a long road to recovery for parish residents.
"I think Isaac really broke the back of a lot of people. They've just been through so much with Katrina, they just tell me they can't go through it again," said Nungesser.
Nungesser says it will take five to seven years without a storm to improve flood protection in the parish.
The ultimate goal is for 100 year flood protection for the entire parish.
