NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Tropical Storm Isaac has made things interesting for the New Orleans Saints and their fans, due in Nashville Thursday night to play the Titans.
Hurricane Isaac pushed the Saints to Cincinnati to practice. While some of the team's fans and even the media covering the game decided to come Nashville a few days early.
The powerful storm that has people all over the Gulf Coast worried, some hunkering down in their homes, others hitting the road. Like Nashville native Anquilla Russell who drove eight hours and 550 miles to the safest place she could think of, Music City.
"I moved to New Orleans in May," she said. "To me, life is precious, and when you have an opportunity to get out and don't have to stay, you have means to leave or somewhere to go, and you choose to stay. My great aunt stayed."
Updates from Louisiana make her even more nervous and fearful for those friends and family who chose to ride it out. It's why she said evacuating, for her, was the right decision and Nashville, she said, never looked so good.
