BRADENTON, Fla. - Moody’s Investors Service does not anticipate disruption of debt-service payments or changes in ratings or outlook on issuers in Louisiana and Mississippi affected by Hurricane Isaac, the agency said Monday.

Isaac made landfall on the coasts of the two states Aug. 28 as a category 1 hurricane with sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. A major disaster declaration was issued on Aug. 29, and nine Louisiana parishes and four Mississippi counties became eligible for public and individual assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
