Alabama Beach Structures Look OK After Isaac

Waves crash into the public fishing pier at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, Ala., shortly before Hurricane Isaac made landfall in Louisiana on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2012. Crews removed flooring panels from the pier to prevent damage.

The gulf is churning large waves and white foam on Alabama's coast and the wind from Isaac is still whistling around buildings. But beachfront walkways and other structures along the shore appear intact.


Lights are still on Wednesday morning in Orange Beach and a few cars are traveling the beach road. Louisiana took the brunt of Isaac after the hurricane shifted west and gave Alabama only a glancing blow.
