St. John Parish President on Isaac recovery 1 year later

Laplace, La. - Hurricane Isaac made landfall in Louisiana one year ago flooding parishes on both sides of the lake.

The category one storm brought flood waters of up to 15 feet to areas of St. John and Plaquemines Parish.

Thursday, St. John Parish will host a commemoration ceremony honoring the resiliency of the community.

The event at the St. John Community Center in Laplace begins at noon and the New Wine Christian Fellowship is hosting an event Thursday night in to reflect on the storm.

The service begins at 7pm.
