Even though the coast is far away, many people in the Mountain State have friends and loved ones who are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac.
Former WOWK Producer Wendy Landry and her husband moved back to Louisiana after living in the Huntington area for a while.
She recorded video from her porch of the storm as it tore up a fence in the back yard.
"We were looking out off our back porch across the pond at the trees and just watching them sway and of course our fence had been knocked down," Landry said.
Former Nitro High School student Douglas Weston III flew through the outer edges of the storm. He shared some pictures of what Isaac looked like from the sky.
"I took the pictures Tuesday as the storm was just moving up the coast," Weston said. "We were flying from Tupelo to Meridian and through one of the extreme outer bands of Hurricane Isaac."
Both Landry and Weston said they have been through other hurricanes that prepared them for this storm.
"We've been through category 3 storms. Both my husband and I were in high school during Hurricane Andrew so we weren't very worried."
