Harrison County residents weather storm as Isaac lashes Mississippi coast

Hurricane Isaac made landfall twice in the last day and is now back on land in southern Louisiana, pounding on the Gulf Coast.

President Obama has declared states of emergency in Louisiana and in Mississippi's coastal areas including Harrison County, which has issued mandatory evacuations for residents in low-lying areas. Two other nearby counties have issued similar orders, and an estimated 175,000 residents could be affected.

Rupert Lacy, director of the Harrison County Emergency Management Agency, talks with Zoraida on "Early Start" this morning with an update on conditions in Gulfport, Mississippi.
