Lee brings havoc to the gulf coast.
The storm has been compared to Hurricane Katrina with rain and damages expected to mount in the coming hours and days. Oil and gas production has been brought to a halt by Lee amid threats of flooding in parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
Approximately 60% of oil production in the Gulf and more than half of natural gas production have been shut down, according to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement.
