In the foreground is a sign marking the waterline from Hurricane Katrina in Don Duplantier’s home in Braithwaite, La., on Sept. 2., but floodwaters from Isaac went all the way up to the second floor. Duplantier retrieved his cat and collected his daughter’s bridesmaid dress for the upcoming wedding of his son.
