Issac is just about to make land fall out on the delta, it'll still be a while before he gets to New Orleans. His approach is almost a worse case location as far as pushing surge into Lake Pontchartrain. Even so as a minimal cat 1 storm, I wouldn't expected the surge to be near as much as predicted. This area has been in a drought, so the rain will help. The down side is it's mostly clay soil which can't absorb water quickly.
I heard you need some rain
The front side of the storm doesn't seem to have that much water in it, waiting to see what the back side has to offer. As of now most of the moisture from Isaac is on the Carloina coast.
