NEWORLEANS - The recovery from Hurricane Isaac, like Hurricane Katrina, could take years.
More than 80 non-profit agencies supported by the United Way for Southeast Louisiana are in it for the long-haul. But it will take money, which is where you can help.
On Friday night, Channel 4 is presenting a live concert at Tipitina's Uptown, 501 Napoleon Ave., to raise money for flood victims.
There will be a live broadcast of this concert from 8-10 p.m. on My 54 WUPL (Cox Channel 2; Charter Channel 16; DIRECTV Channel 54.)
