NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana -- Pumps in New Orleans are working hard to drain all of the water that Hurricane Isaac is dumping on the city.

There are 73 pumping stations across five parishes. Some are able to move water at 150,000 gallons per second.

The city's new flood gate system of levees was built in response to Katrina's devastation.
