Hurricane Isaac First to make Landfall this Atlantic Hurricane Season

A recent report from Reuters stated that Hurricane Isaac is the first to make landfall in the US during the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season which began June 1st.

According to Reuters, after Katrina, "the Army Corps of Engineers built a $14.5 billion defense system of walls, floodgates, levees and pumps designed to protect the city from heavy tidal surges."

It's interesting to see how levees actually work.  Check out these simulators from the National Flood Insurance Program.
