New Orleans seminary student deals with first hurricane

PICAYUNE, MISSISSIPPI (WYMT) Just after Isaac made landfall, WYMT spoke with an Eastern Kentucky seminary student who just moved to New Orleans about a year ago.

Josh Holland and his family are now staying at a home in Picayune, Mississippi, about 40 miles from New Orleans.

"I was looking forward to the adventure of riding out my first hurricane but a lot smarter people that I said you have a wife and two small children and you need to get out of the city.
This is a really slow moving storm... it's going to hang out a long time and dump a lot of rain and bring a lot of winds," Holland told us.

Holland told us it was very eerie there and he expected conditions to get worse early Wednesday morning. They were already experiencing power glitches.

Before moving to New Orleans, Holland was an assistant pastor at First Baptist Church in Hazard.

He says his family appreciates all the prayers and concern from back home.
