Several states battered by Hurricane Isaac will spend this Labor Day weekend cleaning up.
Isaac arrived around Tuesday and stayed longer than expected. The slow moving hurricane brought lots of rain and destructive wind gusts to areas along the Gulf Coast
For three days fierce winds and rain pounded the coast. Casinos in Biloxi were shut down, trees were snapped in half, and rising water forced people from their homes.
At the height of the storm, 75 people filled the Red Cross shelter a few miles outside of Biloxi.
Elizabeth Parks is six months pregnant and a has a 2-year-old son. She's been staying at the shelter since Tuesday night.
"Boring, stressful, just want to go home. I don't have cell phone service or nothing," Parks said.
Troy Causey is from Los Angeles. He was in Biloxi on business, staying at a casino. The casinos closed down Tuesday morning, and Causey can't get home.
"The shelter has been a blessing. Red Cross did come to help us out, as far as providing shelter, getting out of the storm, giving us that sense of security here. Coming from southern California as a tourist, I've never experienced this type of rain in my life," Causey said.
US Highway 90, a main coastal road that goes through Biloxi, is under water. For days emergency officials have been warning people who live in low lying areas to get out of their homes while they can.
Biloxi's casinos opened back up Thursday night, after being closed by the state for nearly three days.
Thousands along the Gulf Coast remain without power this weekend. However, many businesses in Biloxi and nearby Gulfport have opened back up after closing their doors Monday.
