NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has arrived in Louisiana to survey damage from the storm Isaac.

Friday's trip was his first stop after closing the Republican National Convention in Florida a night earlier.

The former Massachusetts governor was expected to visit an emergency command center in Lafitte, near New Orleans, where emergency crews were assisting victims of Hurricane Isaac.

The storm brought severe flooding to the area this week before it was downgraded to a tropical storm.

Romney was joining Gov. Bobby Jindal on a scheduled tour of storm damage.

The White House announced Friday that Obama would follow with his own visit to Louisiana on Monday.
