New Orleans got the lion's share of the media coverage, in part due to then-Governor Blanco's and then-mayor Nagin's hysterics. But just ask the folks around Mobile, or Pensacola, or Gulfport how their neighborhoods fared for Katrina.
There is no way, by any known trick of geography, topology, or meteorology that a storm surge could get as far inland as Jackson. Anyplace that wasn't flooded by Katrina's massive storm surge probably won't be flooded by another storm's surge, either.
Isaac's path wasn't all that different from Katrina's, when you look at the whole 200+ mile radius of the storm and not just the plotted position of the storm's eye. So, your comment about Katrina taking Isaac's path, well, that more-or-less already happened, and we know the result.
