The White House says President Barack Obama had made his decision to visit Louisiana on Monday before Mitt Romney's announcement that he would be going to the state Friday to see damage from Hurricane Isaac.

Obama will also be examining water and wind damage from the storm. He will be arriving in Louisiana after a campaign stop in Ohio earlier in the day.

Obama spokesman Jay Carney, when asked about Romney's trip to the area Friday, said it's "always important to draw attention to the fact that individuals and families and business owners are profoundly affected."

Isaac reached hurricane strength as it made landfall earlier this week. It coincided with the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and it struck as the Republican National Convention unfolded in Florida.
