“Everything is fine. No major damage to the buildings and no damage to stored product,” Allan Colley, president of Dupuy Storage and Forwarding, said in an email to Reuters. “Luckily we do have power, telephone, Internet, etc., so we’re open as usual today and will be fully operational by this afternoon as more of our employees return.”

Isaac registered as a category I hurricane when it passed through New Orleans and a large additional swath of the gulf coast on Tuesday. Dupay representatives told Reuters that a reinforced wall installed after Katrina may have prevented damage.
