Some residents braved floodwaters from Hurricane Isaac to rescue a few neighbors who had ignored a mandatory evacuation in part of Louisiana, a parish president told CNN on Wednesday. One woman was rescued off her roof and two other people were rescued from their homes, Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser said. "We have reports of people on their roofs, in attics, in 12 to 14 feet of water," he said. Those homes were on the east bank of a levee, but "this storm is going to kick around and deliver the same type of flow to the west bank," he said.
