LaPLACE, La. (AP) - President Barack Obama says officials from all levels of government will do everything they can to assess the damage from Hurricane Isaac and figure out how to help.
Obama visited the hurricane zone Monday, three days after Republican rival Mitt Romney looked over flooded homes and businesses in the area. Obama said federal officials would make sure they are "on the case very quickly" to assess what happened and how to respond.
Obama met with residents in hard-hit St. John the Baptist Parish, 30 miles outside of New Orleans.
