While the winds were howling and rain pouring apparently there was also looting in New Orleans during the madness of Hurricane Isaac.

LOOTCertainly the thievery was not as bad as what the city experienced during Katrina seven years ago which scenes of people wading through water with items such as ensconced televisions over their heads.  The mayham and chaos during the flood and the aftermath shocked the world as much as the flooding itself.

WGNO TV reports there were at least a few incidents of theft last week in the Carrollton area of Hollygrove.

As a result, at least two wage earners are out of jobs as well as those who are out of valued possessions.    

According to the television station, "They took property from several homes.

"My amplifier, my CD player, my two speakers and mixer board," theft victim Jerome Nealy said.

And they virtually cleaned out the corner store.

WGNO News Reporter Darian Trotter asked, "What did they take? They took liquor, and beer, and whatever they could get," neighbor Caldon Bruno replied.

"That was the only local store in the community," Nealy said.

"I don't like it because I have to go to some other store to get what I need," Bruno said.
