Obama says nation will recover from Isaac

AMES, Iowa (AP) — President Barack Obama says the nation will help people recover from Hurricane Isaac, “no matter what this storm brings.”

He says that when disaster strikes, “we’re not Democrats or Republicans first, we are Americans first.”

The president says during a campaign event in Ames, Iowa, that preparations for the storm have been under way for days, and he vows the nation will “help our neighbors in need.”

Obama has warned residents of the Gulf Coast to listen to local authorities and follow their directions ahead of the hurricane that is veering toward New Orleans.
